Woman identified in fatal C Street hit-and-run
Anchorage Police have identified the woman killed in a hit-and-run over the weekend; the search continues for the suspect vehicle.
Cassandra M. Tinker, 23, of Anchorage was identified as the woman killed in the collision at 34th Avenue and C Street on Saturday, according to a statement from APD. The intersection at C, a one-way southbound street at the crash site, does not have a marked crosswalk.
“Initial indications are that an adult female was at 34th Avenue, crossing from east to west across C Street, when she was struck by (the) vehicle,” police wrote. “The driver did not stop; the female was declared deceased at the scene.”
APD spokeswoman Renee Oistad said the crash was immediately reported to police by witnesses.
Police have no information on the driver, but they're still hoping the public will help them locate the suspect vehicle.
The vehicle is still believed to be a "90's model blue GMC or Chevy pickup truck" with a missing passenger-side headlight, but police have added that the truck they are looking for has four doors, silver full-length running boards, a long bed and dark fender flares, Anchorage Police said in a statement Tuesday.
Three surveillance images of the suspect vehicle released later Saturday, police said, showed that it "appears to be an extended cab pickup, blue in color, with an empty bed, and chrome molding along the bottom."
According to Cassandra's mother Mary Alice Tinker, her daughter just turned 23 in May and was working at the Alaska Native Medical Center as a certified nursing assistant in the pediatrics unit.
Anyone with information or additional surveillance video regarding the hit-and-run is asked to call APD at 311, or contact Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or through its website.
