Police hope description will help solve hit-and-run that killed two

EZEL, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police don't have a lot of information to go on to solve the case. They say Tony Ross and Elizabeth Thornsberry were standing along Highway 1010 when a truck came through and hit them. Now, police are hoping a more detailed description will help generate some leads.

The accident happened shortly after 7PM Saturday evening. Police say Ross and Thornsberry had been at Jasper's Bar along nearby Highway 946 when Ross decided to leave, walking toward Highway 1010. Shortly after, they say Thornsberry caught up to Ross in her car along 1010. They say she stepped out of her car to talk with Ross when a truck going west came through, hitting and killing both of them. Monday, police released some specific details about the truck they're looking for. They say it's a dark blue 2002-2005 GMC Sierra and it's got some distinctive features.

"It will have damage to the front left side of the vehicle and also possibly the rear wheel on the drivers side of the vehicle is not factory. It appears to be a spire tire that's on there," said Master Trooper Joe Veeneman of the Kentucky State Police.

People who live in the area said they'd never seen a truck like that. It might have been just passing through.

"Don't know if the vehicle's going to be a local vehicle or from another county. We're just asking that the citizens that live in that area can look for this vehicle," said Veeneman.
