PERRY TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – The Ohio State Highway Patrol is searching for answers after a Salem woman was killed while walking on the road overnight.

“This person lost their life and, you know, their family’s is now hanging in the balance because of that,” said Sgt. Patrick Abel with the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Highway Patrol is looking for help identifying a suspect after the woman was hit and killed in Perry Township.

“We know somebody out there has seen something. People talk and it’s the right thing to do to come forward,” Sgt. Abel said.

It happened just after midnight on Friday on State Route 344 near Chestnut Grove Road, just outside of Salem.

The sheriff’s office called Highway Patrol just after midnight when they found 46-year-old Brandy Lasky in the westbound lane.

Sgt. Abel said the driver left the scene.

There were pieces of the vehicle left at the scene, but not enough to identify the type or color of the car.

It’s not clear why Lasky was walking along the road.

“If anybody has seen anything or if there’s any fresh damage to vehicles, something out of the ordinary, to let the patrol post know,” Sgt. Abel said.

The accident is still under investigation.
