BROWN COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A suspect and vehicle possibly connected to a deadly hit-skip crash Sunday on SR-32 in Brown County have been located, a news release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) said.

The release says the vehicle is being processed for evidence in connection with the crash that killed Aliva Shumate, 45, of Sardinia.

OSHP’s Georgetown Post received reports around 6:30 a.m. about a woman lying in the median of SR-32 near Schweighart Road, troopers said.

They say she was struck and killed by a vehicle.

Troopers say they couldn’t find any witnesses who saw what happened but received information later that led them to the possible location of a suspect and a vehicle.

No charges have been filed so far in connection with the crash.
