ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police say a 33-year-old woman died after being struck by a vehicle, whose driver then fled the scene.
Police say Angela Coleman was crossing the street early Monday near the Imperial Palace in north St. Louis when she stumbled. While she was getting back on her feet, she was hit by a car and the driver did not stop.
She was taken to St. Louis University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Coleman was alone and police did not get a good description of the vehicle.
