*** FATAL HIT and RUN***
On 01/01/2021, at about 9:39 PM, Officers with the Billings Police Department responded to a vehicle vs. pedestrian accident in the 3300 block of Rimrock Road. The pedestrian, a 66 year old female from Billings, died at the scene.
The vehicle that struck the pedestrian fled the area and has not been located. Debris on the scene and surveillance video lead investigators to believe the vehicle is a maroon 2005 Chevy Silverado, with damage to the front driver side area of the headlight. Additionally, the truck’s passenger rear tail/brake light was not working. The truck was travelling east on Rimrock.
The BPD is asking for public assistance from anyone with information regarding this vehicle. We ask that anyone driving in the area around that time to contact us with any information. Additionally, anyone living in that area of Rimrock is asked to check surveillance cameras for video footage of the vehicle. Lastly, anyone who recognizes the vehicle and/or sees a vehicle matching that description with damage as described above is asked to call. Please call 657-8200 with any information.
