FARMINGTON — The FBI is seeking information on a hit-and-run crash on the Navajo Nation last month that killed a woman.

Loretta Silversmith, 56, was struck and killed by a car near Sheep Springs on U.S. Highway 491. She was hit by a vehicle in the late hours of March 5 or the early morning hours of March 6 north of a convenience store, according to an FBI news release.

Investigators found a mirror that may belong to a Dodge Stratus or a Plymouth Breeze from 1996 to 2000.

Anyone with information on a person who drives a car missing a passenger side mirror that fits the description or is requesting to purchase this type of mirror is asked to call the FBI at 505-889-1300.
