It is believed the vehicle may have been acting suspicious or traveling at a high rate of speed. Anyone with information about this vehicle are asked to contact State Police.”

UPDATE: Monday, Aug. 1 – Officials have identified the victim as Alexandra Nicollette Brueger, according to the Oakland Press.  Brueger was working towards a graduate degree in creative writing and was a registered nurse at Providence Park Hospital.  Police still do not have a suspect or a motive.
