Arkansas State Police investigators have identified the make and model of the car that struck and killed a woman near Lonoke on Friday night as a GMC Denali built between 1999 — 2002. Seen above is an ASP file photo of a GMC Denali of that model, though a witness said the truck in question was dark colored.

Kim Perkins, 39, was trying to flag down help after her car ran out of gas around 9:40 p.m. Friday night on U.S. 70 near Cypress Creek Road, five miles west of Lonoke, when she was struck and killed. The driver didn't stop. A State Police news release said there would likely be "significant damage" to the right front corner of the truck, possibly extending along the passenger side.

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