Danbury police have released a photo of a van may be connected to the hit-and-run crash in which a young mother was killed on Friday night.

Rachel Sack, who was from Bethel, was walking on South Street near Great Pasture Road late Friday night when she was struck by a car.

Police said the car kept going and never stopped.

On Thursday, police released a surveillance picture of a white van with a ladder rack and passenger-side windows traveling on South Street near Great Pasture Road around midnight on Friday.

"I just feel sick, sick to my stomach," Andrew Sack, Rachel Sack's brother, previously told Eyewitness News.

Sack was the mother of a 9-week-old baby boy Jackson. The family of the young mother made a plea to driver to turn themselves into police.

"I hope they come forward,” Sarah Ewud, Rachel Sack's godmother, previously told Eyewitness News. “I hope they have a conscience."
Anyone with any information about the vehicle is asked to call Danbury police at 203-797-2157.
More than $1,000 is being offered as a reward for any information that helps lead to an arrest in the case.
