MILTON-FREEWATER, Wash. – A Walla Walla woman who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Milton-Freewater early Sunday was a young mother to a 3-year-old boy, according to one of her friends.

Alicia Bernhardt, 20, was on foot when she was hit by a car on Highway 11 near Northeast First Avenue around 3:30 a.m. The car fled before authorities arrived.

Authorities believe the suspect’s vehicle is a blue 2002 or 2003 Honda Accord. The car should have damage to the front passenger side. It has yet to be located.
