What is a Silent Witness and how do you become one?

A Gilbert woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Grants Pass, Ore. early Thursday.

Gabriella Licata, 22, was found about 12:42 a.m. lying in the westbound lanes of Grants Pass Parkway just shy of Rogue River Highway, according to a news release from Grants Pass Department of Public Safety.

Passers-by attempted to revive Licita but were unable, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives believe she was hit while walking on the parkway by a light-colored sedan. About 8 a.m. Thursday, a patrol officer found a car that matched the description.

Police confirmed that a male had been taken into custody but no charges had yet been filed.

An investigation was ongoing as police worked to reconstruct the scene.
