Woman hit and killed by unidentified vehicle in Midland

A woman was hit and killed by an unidentified vehicle that left her along a Midland street, Pierce County detectives said.

Another driver found the woman, in her 50s, with serious injuries about 10:40 p.m. Monday near Golden Given Road and 106th Street Court East.

The injured woman died at the scene, and investigators said it appears she was hit by a vehicle that fled, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

She appears to have walked away from a nearby care facility, which reported her missing Tuesday morning, Troyer said. He said she left the assisted living home, which is not a lockdown facility, sometime Monday night. She suffered from mental health issues, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

She has not been identified, pending notification of her family.

Detectives ask anyone with information, such as reports of vehicles that may have recent front end damage, to call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips are anonymous and can lead to a reward.
