ORIGINAL STORY 

State police are investigating a hit and run that left a Roanoke woman in critical condition. 

It happened around 5 a.m. Wednesday on Route 11, across from the Pepsi plant in Botetourt County. 

The Botetourt County 911 center received a call from a citizen that a female was on the ground and unresponsive. When state police arrived, they found a woman on the ground and determined she had been hit by a vehicle that was traveling southbound on Route 11, toward Roanoke. 

The woman was identified as Joyce Bandy Moxley, 55. She was walking to work when she was hit. She is in critical condition at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. 

Evidence at the scene suggests the vehicle that fled the scene will be a General Motors product; truck or SUV.  Virginia State Police are asking that the public, insurance companies and body shops notify state police if they service a vehicle with right side front and right side mirror damage.  The damage may include the headlight, marker light, right front fender and passenger mirror.
