HUNTINGTON — The photos of several individuals wanted for questioning regarding a fatal hit-and run that occurred late Sunday night in Huntington have been released by police.

“We need to find out who they are and capture them,” Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial said.

Carol Ann Brooks, 74, was crossing 9th Avenue in Huntington at the 11th Street intersection when she was struck by a vehicle traveling east, according to Dial.

Dial said police were called to the scene around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, where Brooks was pronounced dead. In addition to the men shown in surveillance photos, police believe they are looking for a silver Chevrolet Malibu, which likely will have damage to the hood.

Anyone with information regarding the location or names of the individuals shown, or the location of the car, is encouraged to contact the Huntington Police Department at 304-696-4444.
