SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City Police Department has released the license plate number of a car it says was involved in a hit-and-run that killed 44-year-old Vanessa David.

On Oct. 13, at 8:29 p.m., police received a 9-1-1 call reporting a vehicle had hit a pedestrian at 200 South and Redwood Road. When they arrived, David had already died at the scene.
