Woman dies from hit-and-run accident

DULUTH - A 56-year-old Lawrenceville woman who was struck by a hit-and-run driver Sunday died from her injuries, and authorities are still searching for the driver.

Kim Fuah Tan was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center two days after an unknown vehicle slammed into her Toyota Corolla in front of Brighton Springs Apartments on Boggs Road in Duluth.

Police do not know the make and model of the suspect's car, but it likely has a bumper height of 18 to 24 inches.

A piece of plastic torn from the vehicle was stuck in the rim of the wheel of the victim's Toyota Corolla.

The suspect's vehicle also probably has damage and paint transfered onto the front end, said Officer Darren Moloney, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Police Department.

"More than likely someone saw it and just drove on, but once they hear we're looking for help maybe they can say 'Hey I at least know the color of the car,'" Moloney said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the confidential Accident Investigation Unit hotline at 770-513-5048 and leave a message.
