Akron Police are still looking for the driver in a fatal hit-skip along Route 8 South near East Buchtel Avenue Friday night.
Just about 10:30 a woman reportedly walked into traffic along Route 8 after the car she was a passenger in pulled over onto the berm.
The 26-year-old victim's mother, who was driving the car, told police that her daughter was acting erratically, saying that the victim got out of the car before it came to a complete stop and then walked right into traffic. That woman was transported to Summa Akron City Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. 
The driver of the vehicle that hit the woman initially stopped and then drove off, according to the victim's mother.
Again, police are still looking for that driver of the vehicle that's only described as a white truck at this point. The victim's name has not been released yet.
