ISP Seeking Help Investigating Hit-And-Run Death

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho State Police are asking the driver in a September hit-and-run crash to come forward so they can finish the investigation into the death of Joshwa Merriken.

The ISP believes the 36-year-old was struck and killed on Sept. 30 as he walked along U.S. Highway 95 near Moscow. His body was found Oct. 15.

Trooper Chad Montgomery says Merriken had been warned numerous times by family and law enforcement officers about walking along the fog line on highways while wearing dark clothing. Due to the circumstances, the ISP says it was not likely any charges would have been filed.

The state police say the suspect vehicle is a 1986 through 1992 Ford F-series pickup or Bronco which was likely either towing or hauling a camper.
