BARNESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a suspect in the hit-and-run death of a college student as she walked to her job at a Huddle House restaurant in Barnesville.

Georgia State Patrol officials say Alexandria Desir of Locust Grove was struck by a vehicle as she walked along Rose Avenue in Barnesville late Saturday night.

Authorities say Desir was a student at Gordon State College in Barnesville.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that investigators believe the vehicle is a Saturn Vue between the model years 2002 and 2005. The right front corner of the vehicle should be damaged, the GSP said, and the light should be missing.

Barnesville is about 60 miles southeast of Atlanta.
