Arlington police have shifted their search in a fatal hit-and-run last week to a dark gray Chrysler, police said Tuesday.
Investigators are looking for a Chrysler 300, model years 2007 through 2010, that ran the red light at the intersection of Northeast Green Oaks Boulevard and Burney Road in Arlington at 8:15 p.m. Friday, hitting Kelly Walters, 20.
Walters, a junior at the University of Texas at Arlington, was walking across the street. She was pronounced dead at 8:53 p.m. at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford, authorities said.
She died of multiple blunt force injuries, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.

Walters was walking home to her apartment near Ellis Elementary School, her mother, Ginna Walters, has said.
Police acquired surveillance video from a nearby business that shows the Chrysler and a white car approaching the intersection.
“The video shows a white vehicle stopping at the red light as the suspect vehicle continues through the intersection. Early witness accounts initially prompted officers to look for a dark-colored SUV. However, this new information has led investigators to seek the owner of a dark gray 2007-2010 Chrysler 300,” Arlington police Sgt. Jeff Houston said in a prepared statement.
Police had not found the Chrysler’s driver as of 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, Tiara Ellis Richard, an Arlington police spokeswoman, said.
