Marine killed in Ohio hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:

BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) - Police in western Ohio say a U.S. Marine was killed over the weekend when she was hit by a car that didn't stop.

Police are seeking the car that hit 34-four-year-old Monica Plank of Stafford, Va. She was struck while walking just after midnight Sunday, after leaving a restaurant in Bellefontaine, northwest of Columbus.

The Bellefontaine Examiner reports that Plank, a Marine gunnery sergeant, died hours later at a Columbus hospital.

Police said Plank was walking north in the outside northbound lane of traffic because of snow- and ice-covered sidewalks. Her husband, Chris Plank, a native of the area who is also a U.S. Marine sergeant, was about 100 to 200 feet behind her.
