ST. LOUIS (AP) - The mother of a young woman killed in a downtown St. Louis hit-and-run accident is pleading with the public to help solve the case. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Georgie Busch spoke Monday near the scene where 23-year-old Amber Wood was killed. The accident happened early Friday as Wood and a 29-year-old man were crossing the street in front of Broadway Oyster Bar. The man was also hit and is expected to be released from a hospital soon.
No arrests have been made but the Pontiac Grand Am that struck Wood was found later Friday near a scrapyard in Madison, Ill.
Wood was a graduate of the high school in Granite City, Ill. She worked as a server at EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery in Chesterfield.
