Vehicle sought in deadly hit-and-run
WALKER - Police identified a woman hit by two vehicles and killed while trying to cross Florida Boulevard in Baton Rouge this weekend, and said they're searching for one of the vehicles which fled the scene.
Baton Rouge Police said 39-year-old Jannie Doiga died at the scene of the wreck, which happened late Saturday night at the intersection of Florida and North Donmoor.
