MORGAN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police are releasing more details about the suspect's car in the Morgan County double fatal hit-and-run.

KSP say the suspect vehicle is a blue 2002-2005 year model GMC Sierra 1500 extended cab pickup, with a short wheel base.

Police say the vehicle will have damage to the left front, and the driver's side rear tire is believed to be of smaller size than the other three tires.

KSP were called to the scene on Saturday night in the Ezel community.

They say 41-year-old Elizabeth Thornsberry of Ezel and 48-year-old Tony Ross of Clearfield were at Jaspers Bar in Maytown.

Ross left the bar on foot and Thornsberry followed in a 2001 Pontiac.

Police believe Thornsberry stopped and exited the vehicle to talk to Ross when they were both hit in the westbound lane by a vehicle traveling West.

Both Ross and Thornsberry were killed.

Kentucky State Police are asking anyone with any information in this case to give them a call at (606) 784-4127.
