ST. GEORGE — Detectives were called out to North Dixie Drive Saturday night after a woman was struck and killed by a vehicle that left the scene, leaving bystanders to find her body and alert authorities a short time later.

Police are asking for the public’s help locating the car and driver.

Shortly after 8 p.m. emergency personnel responded to North Dixie Drive on an apparent fatal hit-and-run incident involving a pedestrian, St. George Police spokeswoman Lona Trombley said.

Upon arrival officers found a woman lying near the roadway on North Dixie Drive just south of the Biolife facility.

“It appears the woman was pushing a cart on the east side of Dixie Drive when she was hit by a vehicle,” Trombley said.

The body of the pedestrian, a woman who appeared to be in her 50s, was located by two bystanders, a witness on scene said, and she appeared to have suffered extensive injuries.

The woman was already dead when responders were alerted to the incident, the witness said.
