Tulsa Police have recovered a vehicle believed to have been used in a fatal hit and run late Monday night. They say they found the SUV at the 3900 block of Louisville Avenue Tuesday morning.

Officers say at 9:57 p.m. Monday, a driver hit the woman at East 47th Street and South Harvard Avenue, then drove off from the scene.

They say the woman died at the scene from her injuries.

The medical examiner responded to the scene to take the body and conduct an investigation. They are working to identify her after they notify next of kin. Officials describe the victim as a black woman between 20 and 30 years old.

In Oklahoma, if a driver fails to remain at the scene of a fatal accident, he or she could face a felony. If found guilty, the driver could face up to 10 years in prison and pay a fine between $1,000 to $10,000.
