The Johnson City Police Department sought help Friday in identifying the driver of a van involved in the Feb. 9 fatal hit-and-run of Brenda K. Maynor near the intersection of East Main and Bert streets.
A press release said the driver of the van hit Maynor crossing the road near the intersection around 9 p.m. Afterward, the van sped away down Bert Street before turning left on Orleans Street.
