Orange police are investigating a hit and run accident that left one woman dead, Friday evening.

According to Capt. R.O. Enmon, 46 year old Rhonda Franken was apparently walking across Simmons Dr. at about 11:00 pm, when she was struck by a vehicle.

Franken, who was found lying in the roadway, was pronounced dead at the scene by Judge Dunn, and an autopsy has been ordered.

The vehicle, which left the scene, has not been found.

A 2002 green Honda was located on Simmons Dr. a distance from the crash, and it had damage which indicated it had been involved in a traffic accident.

The driver of the vehicle was questioned by Detective Sgt. Laughlin and released.

The investigation is continuing through the detective division.
