ROCKY MOUNT — City police have identified a car allegedly involved in a hit-and-run pedestrian fatality.

The car is identified as a black Toyota Camry. Police developed a person of interest after locating the vehicle, city media relations specialist Jesse Nunery said in a Tuesday press release. 

Around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Rocky Mount police officers responded to the 2200 block of Hunter Hill Road to a report of a woman lying in the road, Nunery said.

“When they arrived, officers located a 46-year-old victim who was struck by a vehicle,” Nunery said. “The vehicle did not remain at the scene.”

The victim has been identified as Julia Uduma. She succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police described the suspect vehicle as a 2018-20 Toyota Camry SE with front-end damage.

The case remains under investigation. 

Police ask anyone with information about Uduma’s death to contact the Rocky Mount Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Crash Reconstruction Unit at 252-972-1431, RMPD dispatch at 252-972-1411 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
