Asheville Hit-and-Run: Police Need Your Help

Sad, bad news from Asheville. There was a hit-and-run late last night; a pedestrian was killed and the driver disappeared into the night. Police are looking for a white two-door*  car with damage to the left front fender and windshield.

* The word from a recent C-T article says it’s a “small, white Chrysler,” “possibly a 4-door.” 

Spread the word.
