Irondequoit Police say they have a vehicle of interest they're looking for in connection with a deadly hit-and-run.

Officers say 87-year-old Joan Dierna was checking her mailbox when she was hit on Bay View Road in Irondequoit around 10 a.m. Saturday. The driver left her lying in the road.


On Tuesday, police released a photo of a commercial truck with unique detailing. Police say it was in the area around the time Dierna was hit.

Police say the driver is not a suspect but may know something that can help police. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

Dierna's funeral is scheduled for Nov. 26, the same day she and her husband had planned to celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary.
