Capt. Daniel Moffo said in an email Friday that police believe Yurovsky was struck by a light-colored vehicle.

“A possible motor vehicle of interest may include a 2010-2015 GMC type vehicle, which may have been involved. The fleeing vehicle likely sustained damage to the front driver side grille and bumper area,” Moffo’s email states.
