MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police say they are looking for a vehicle involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash in Bell County.

Police say in a statement that 59-year-old Adia Fuson of Ingram had stopped on a highway to help a man who was trying to reload a pressure washer that had fallen from the back of a pickup truck.

Police say a black sedan with two men was traveling east when it left the roadway and struck Fuson, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The statement says the men in the sedan fled and police are trying to locate them. Police say evidence at the scene indicates the vehicle is missing a headlight, a passenger's side mirror and should have damage to the front end.
