WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Police say a woman jogger was killed in a suspected hit-and-run in central Ohio.

Westerville police say they received a call around 9:45 a.m. Monday about a body spotted near a road in the Columbus suburb.

Authorities say the body of 66-year-old Linda J. Evans was found in the bushes, a few feet from the road. Police believe the Columbus woman was running when she was struck.

Police also say they arrested a man on a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence. Police Chief Joe Morbitzer says the man is a person of interest in the woman's death.

Police located the suspected vehicle involved in the hit-and-run outside an office building. They say the vehicle was registered under the name of the man arrested on the OVI charge.
