CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Police in Charlotte are investigating after they found a truck that was possibly involved in a hit and run that killed a 30-year-old woman.

According to police, the truck was found along Darden Court around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Police told WBTV that there is a good possibility that this vehicle was involved in a hit in run a couple weeks ago along the 5900 block of Monroe Road. 30-year-old Valerie Michelle Miranda was killed in that accident.

Officers say Miranda was struck while she was crossing the street. Her family says it’s possible she may have just gotten off a city bus after leaving work around midnight.

There’s a stop across the street from her apartment complex.

Information gathered at the scene indicates the suspect vehicle was traveling inbound, toward uptown Charlotte. Brandy Miranda says police told her they have a broken headlight, which may help determine more about the vehicle and whether the headlights were on at the time.

Officers said they were looking for a dark colored pick-up truck with dually rear wheels. The vehicle could have damage to the right front headlight assembly and right front corner, police told WBTV after the deadly crash.

Officers are investigating if the truck found on Tuesday is connected to the case.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or the Major Crash Investigation Unit at 704-432-2169.
