WOODBRIDGE, CT (AP) -

State police say a Connecticut woman whose body was found on the side of the road was killed in a hit-and-run crash.

Police say Department of Transportation workers found the body of 68-year-old Eula Whitley along the side of Route 15 on the Wilbur Cross Parkway around 8:40 a.m. Friday.

Police say there had been no reports of accidents on the southbound section of the parkway. Investigators believe the New Haven woman was hit sometime overnight.

The parkway closed for several hours Friday while police investigated. It reopened around 3:30 p.m.

Police are searching for the car involved, which has been described as a 2007-2009 Nissan Versa hatchback or a four-door sedan with front-end damage.
