Police are searching for a U-Haul truck that struck and killed an elderly woman Monday afternoon.

The woman, identified by police as 79-year-old Tran Hong, was walking near the intersection of Johnson Road and Daniel Lane at about 3:45 p.m. when she was struck. Hong died at the scene, police said.

Witnesses told police a U-Haul left the roadway, struck the woman, got back on the roadway and kept going. Detectives are investigating the incident as a "hit-and-run."

Police believe the truck is missing portions of the right front headlight and corner light. Anyone with information is asked to call the Lawrenceville Police Department at 770-339-2412.
