Unified Police on Friday identified the victim of a hit-and-run, auto-pedestrian fatality in Midvale, and are looking for the woman who rented the vehicle that hit him.

UPD Detective Jared Richardson said Ronald Charles Renfro, 56, was struck by a white SUV at 6:38 p.m. Thursday near 7200 South and 35 West. He later died at the hospital.

A witness said Renfro was crossing 7200 South from the south side to the north side and had just entered the middle of the westbound lanes when he was struck, Richardson said.

The SUV — a 2016 Ford Escape, Utah license plate X953XS — is a rental vehicle that was reported stolen in Salt Lake City on Sept. 11. Richardson said the vehicle should have significant damage to the right front fender and possible damage to the hood and windshield.

The driver was described by a witness as a white woman with blond hair, Richardson said.

He said in a news release that an investigation showed Mika Lindquist had rented the vehicle. UPD contacted her by phone "but now communication with her has failed," the release says.

Linquist is considered a person of interest in the case, Richardson said. She is described as a 31-year-old white female, 5 feet 4 and 110 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes.

UPD is asking anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information about the vehicle or the driver to call 801-743-7000.
