A woman killed in a hit and run in Dorchester has been named as Erika Prisacaru. She leaves behind her six-year-old son Andrei, who is being cared for by relatives.
On 27 December 2017 Dorset Police were called to The Grove after a car hit a pedestrian. Erika was taken to Dorset County Hospital but later died from her injuries.
Officers have released CCTV images of the car they believe hit Erika and failed to stop. The dark-coloured Audi A3 convertible was noticeably dirty and may have been driven by a black man, according to detectives.
Detectives understand that the car went from Station Road into Brewery Square at around 7.40pm on Wednesday 27 December 2017.
It was in The Grove when Erika was hit and then the car returned to the Brewery Square area at 7.55pm.
In a statement Erika's family have pleaded with the driver to come forward.
Officers are also asking anyone who might know who the driver is to contact Dorset Police.
A 24-year-old man from Dorchester, 36-year-old man from Piddlehinton and a 43-year-old man from Bristol who were arrested in relation to the incident were established to have not been involved in the collision and were released without charge.
