Police hunt driver involved in fatal hit and run

4:18 pm on 4 March 2012

Police in Auckland are looking for the driver of a grey-coloured vehicle involved in a hit and run on Saturday which killed a woman.

Alesi Apulu Faafua, who was 27, was struck by the car on Morrin Road in the suburb of St Johns just after 5am on Saturday.

The car was last spotted heading in the direction of College Road.

Miss Faafua died earlier on Sunday in Auckland Hospital as a result of her injuries.

Police are looking for a grey sedan or station wagon, possibly a Ford Falcon.

They say it will probably have frontal damage.

Police also want to speak to anyone who was at the Lepuha Nightclub on Morrin Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.

And they are appealing to anyone who saw any vehicle leaving the car park at the nightclub at about 5am.
