FARMINGTON — The FBI is offering a monetary reward for information about a fatal hit-and-run incident that occurred in early April near Shiprock, according to a press release from the agency.

A woman's body was found April 4 along the south shoulder of the eastbound lanes of U.S. Highway 64 about 7 miles east of Shiprock. Officers believe she was hit several hours before a school bus driver saw her body in the morning and reported it, according to the press release. The FBI is offering $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the driver of the vehicle involved in the incident, according to the press release.

Officers believe the woman may have been hit by a Dodge Ram built between 1999 and 2003.

The FBI has not released the woman's name, but the press release states she was Native American.

Officers are asking anyone who might have information to call the FBI at 505-889-1300.
