GSP searches for deadly hit and run driver

EARLY CO., GA (WALB) - The Georgia State Patrol says that the person who was driving a Dodge Avenger late Saturday night crossed the center line in Early County, and killed a woman headed the other way.

The person driving that car removed the tag from the vehicle, and ran off, leaving 42 year old Nicole Grier of Blakely to die at the scene. It happened near mile marker 2 on the Highway 62 Bypass, just west of Highway 39.

Troopers found the registered owner of the Avenger using its VIN number, but the owner says that several people could have been driving it.

The SCRT team from Albany is handling the case. If you have information that could help them find the person who killed Nicole Grier, call 229- 931-2400.
