LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Arkansas State Police has identified a particular make and model of sport utility vehicle which may be the suspect vehicle that struck and killed a Lonoke woman.

Kimberly Perkins, 39, was apparently attempting to flag-down traffic to ask for assistance after the vehicle in which she was a passenger ran out of gas.

Perkins was struck on U.S. Highway 70 near Cypress Creek Road about 9:40 PM, Friday (August 24, 2012) five miles west of Lonoke. The driver of the vehicle that struck Perkins left the scene.

Special Agents of the State Police Criminal Investigation Division believe Perkins was hit by a GMC Denali manufactured between 1999 - 2002.

The driver of the SUV was traveling eastbound on U.S. Highway 70. Agents believe there should be significant damage to the front, along the right-side of the truck.

A witness to the collision and death says the vehicle that struck Perkins was a dark color.

Attached to this news release is a photograph of the same make and model of the vehicle agents believe was driven by the suspect. The actual suspect vehicle will be a darker color.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Arkansas State Police at (501) 618-8100.
