ST. LOUIS — Police in St. Louis were looking for a driver who hit and killed a woman Wednesday morning on a north city street, then sped away from the scene.

The crash happened just before 6 a.m. at an intersection in the Jeff-Vander-Lou neighborhood, police said. Investigators said a vehicle hit a woman, who later died from her injuries. Police did not immediately release the woman’s name or age.

The crash closed the intersection and roads leading to it early Wednesday morning as police reconstructed the crash.
