Mobile County (WKRG) – Alabama State Troopers are investigating a deadly hit and run accident.
It was in the early morning hours Thursday between 1:00-3:00 am when 48-year-old Tania McPherson was hit and killed on McCrary Road.
It was about 2.6 miles north of Semmes on McCrary Road, this road is extremely narrow, only two lanes wide.
According to reports, McPherson was walking down the middle of the road when she was hit. Troopers say it’s not clear why she was in the road, but they are now looking for the driver responsible. They say the car may have been a 1988 to 2000 model Chevy truck or SUV. They don’t know what color, but say the headlights are flat and rectangular. They also say there should be damage to the left front headlight, hood and bumper. The driver traveled south on McCrary Road shortly after the crash.
No one wanted to go on camera today, but in comments made on Facebook, people described McPherson as meek and soft spoken, someone who was strong in her faith and would find ways to show she was thinking of you. Always helping in the nursery at church or anywhere she was needed.
If you have any information about the crash, call Alabama State Troopers at 251-660-2300.
