Police identified two pedestrians killed in separate incidents along Chestnut Expressway in Springfield Tuesday morning.

Police say the first victim, Richard Gardner, 48, was hit by a white pickup truck in the early morning hours. Police then said the truck sped away. After that incident, a second person, Scarlet Turner, 52 tried to go out onto the roadway to help the first victim, when they were hit by a separate vehicle. Officers tell KY3 there's no indication the second driver was impaired. That driver stopped to help.

Police are looking for a white pickup truck, described as having a small bull bar and would be missing the passenger side mirror.

If anyone sees the truck or knows any information about the driver, you are asked to call the Springfield Police Department.
