Officials have released the name of the woman pedestrian killed Saturday in a hit and run near Clover, but still have not located the vehicle that collided with her.

Peggy Mullinax, 38, died at the scene Saturday morning after she was hit by a vehicle on S.C. 55, said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast. The collision happened around 12:15 a.m.
