The woman killed in a hit-and-run on Highway 3 early Saturday morning has been identified.
Billings woman Tristan Gray, 22, was identified Monday as the victim by Yellowstone County Assistant Deputy Coroner Rich Hoffman.
Gray was killed by multiple blunt force trauma, caused by a vehicle versus pedestrian crash, Hoffman said.
Gray’s body was found lying in the eastbound lane just east of the airport, near the intersection with Southview Drive, early Saturday. Dispatch received a call regarding the body at 3:09 a.m. and police were still on scene processing until 10 a.m., according to Sgt. Harley Cagle.
