According to Parish, Ryan had apparently gotten out of the vehicle when she was hit by a “full-size white pickup truck” that was heading South on the interstate.

The truck continued South and exited the interstate onto Dryden Road.

Ryan was pronounced deceased on the scene.

“Witness accounts and area surveillance footage have helped to identify the suspect vehicle as a newer, white, full-size pickup truck with amber cab lights on the roof and obvious damage to the front passenger side and headlight assembly,” Parish said.

The truck was last seen traveling North on Dryden Road from the interstate.

Moraine police are asking anyone who has information about the crash or the suspect vehicle to contact the police department.
