A woman who was tending to her disabled car on the side of the interstate was killed early Tuesday morning in an apparent hit-and-run.

37-year-old Dana Carver had pulled her car over to the shoulder of Interstate 20 westbound near Hearne Avenue just before 2 A.M. Tuesday, January 3rd. She was standing beside her car, putting gas in the tank, when a passing vehicle side-swiped her car, striking and killing Carver. The vehicle then sped off.

A witness helping Carver could only describe the vehicle that struck her as a truck that sped off.

An autopsy is planned. The incident remains under investigation by Shreveport Police traffic unit investigators.
