BOSTON (AP) — Boston police have identified a woman killed in a hit-and-run incident as a 57-year-old city resident while investigators continue their search for the driver.

Police on Saturday said the victim was Brenda Lee Keller, who was struck by a car in the city’s Mattapan section on Thursday afternoon.
