090216restonfatalposssuspvehicleThe Fairfax County Police Department today released a photo of a car they believe is connected to the fatal hit-and-run crash that happened on North Shore Drive Sunday.

Someone behind the wheel of a car hit and killed 76-year-old Hung Soon Seo at the intersection of North Shore Drive and Village Road some time before 5:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon, police said.

Seo was crossing North Shore Drive at a four way intersection when she was hit by a vehicle that did not stop, according to authorities.

Fairfax police plan to canvass the area near North Shore Drive and Village Road this Sunday 5 p.m. in search of more information about the car, now believed to be a yellow Ford Escape with possible front end damage on the driver’s side.

Though the car was previously thought to be a newer model black Nissan Altima, “new information has determined that the initially thought to be the suspect vehicle may instead be a witness to the hit and run,” according to an update from FCPD earlier this week.

Police released the following flyer about the upcoming search:
