It could be a month before charges are filed in connection with a deadly hit-and-run in Austintown. That's what 21 News was told on Wednesday when requesting the police report on the recovery of the pickup truck that investigators believe ran over 66-year-old Linda Adams.  Police indicated that the case may go before a grand jury.

According to records, officers from Weathersfield Township were called to assist Austintown Police early Tuesday afternoon as they recovered a vehicle that may have struck Adams around 8 p.m. Monday on the 1700 block of Lancaster Drive near Carlisle Avenue while walking with her dog. Adams was taken to the hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. 

The vehicle was found at an address along Depot Road next to the Niles Greenway Bike Trail. Police had been looking for a white Ford F250 or F350 with damage to the front right headlight.

Gerald Reuss lives two doors down from Adams and tells 21 News that he called 911 when he saw two women in pain in his front yard with their dog.

"I pulled up to my driveway and there [was] a lady kneeling over somebody else lying down. So I pulled in and [said] 'What happened, is everybody OK?' [Linda's wife] was crying so much she couldn't even hardly talk and she said, '[Linda] got hit by a truck.' " Reuss said. 

According to Adams's family, she worked in the janitorial department in the Austintown School District.
