DANBURY - Police released two images of a white van they are calling a "vehicle of interest" in the hit and run that killed a young mother in Danbury.

Rachel Sack, 23, was a mother to a 9-week-old son, Jackson, and a hospice nurse for Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western Connecticut. Her funeral was held at the Church of St. Mary in Bethel on Thursday.

"I'm starting to remember more memories and more love and more laughter of Rachel that she's given me. And it's giving me some form of peace to just think of the good stuff at this point," Sack's best friend, Stephanie Ewud, said.

Sack was struck in the area of South Street and Great Pasture Road on the Danbury-Bethel town line early Saturday morning. Witnesses saw the victim in the middle of the roadway and stopped to aid her. She was transported to Danbury Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police that they saw a dark-colored SUV flee the scene, and Thursday morning Danbury police released these images.
