Mother of two killed in hit and run near Lakeport

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) – Early Sunday morning, Mindy Woodson, 30, was walking along Highway 149 near Lakeport when she was hit and killed by a passing vehicle. She was laid to rest in Harrison County Wednesday, leaving behind two children.

State Troopers in Gregg County need your help finding this hit and run driver.

The problem for investigators right now is that there was nobody who actually witnessed the accident. Officials say that at night, it is often too dark and difficult to see anything alongside the road until you are very close. There was only one motorist who notified them about the accident.

Troopers are combing over the details and evidence, trying to find any clues that might help. Time is a factor and they are hoping someone in East Texas has an answer.

State Troopers request that anyone in the area of Highway 149 on Sunday morning who may have seen anything at all, to please give them a call.

Troopers say they have preliminary information that a dark colored pick-up truck or large SUV may have been involved in the accident.
