BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) Police investigating an Ohio hit-and-run crash that killed a U.S. Marine from Virginia are hoping to identify and interview three drivers who were in the area and were captured on surveillance video.

A vehicle struck 34-four-year-old Monica Plank of Stafford, Va., on Sunday shortly after midnight as she walked from a restaurant in Bellefontaine, northwest of Columbus.

The Bellefontaine Examiner reports video shows two cars and a sport utility vehicle passing near where Plank was hit.

Police Chief Brandon Standley says investigators hope those drivers come forward because they may have seen something that could help resolve the case.

A funeral is scheduled Saturday in West Liberty for Plank, who was married to a fellow Marine gunnery sergeant. They were in Bellefontaine to visit family.
