Arkansas State Troopers are investigating a hit-and-run fatality collision that killed a Booneville woman late Tuesday.

Joy Duvall, 50, was struck by a vehicle as she walked southbound along the northbound shoulder of State Highway 23 about a half-mile south of Highway 10, according to an Arkansas State Police news release. Duvall was pronounced dead at the scene.

Duvall was wearing a light color tank top, denim shorts and athletic shoes. She was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound along Highway 23 about 9:50 PM.

Booneville Police Chief Al Brown said this morning that officers don’t have much to go on, yet.

“One individual said he thinks he saw something, but we have no debris on the road and no tire marks,” Brown said.

The Arkansas State Police is asking for anyone with information about a vehicle seen leaving the area of the hit-and-run scene in Booneville to contact State Police, Troop H Headquarters at Fort Smith by calling (479) 783-5195.
