St. Paul police have refined their search for a vehicle in a hit and run accident that killed a St. Paul woman on Nov. 1. Police recovered part of the driver's mirror from the scene of the accident in the West End neighborhood. They initially said they were looking for a silver SUV. They said Friday the vehicle is likely a 2001-2006 Lexus 430 LS sedan , according to the StarTribune.

WCCO reported that friends of the victim, Therese "Tracy" Klotz, 53, are helping police search for the driver. They also created a memorial on the 700 block of Randolph Avenue, where she was struck.

The Pioneer Press reported friends called Klotz a kindhearted woman and legendary baker, who made and delivered 40 pies to friends every year for Thanksgiving.

One friend said she moved slowly because of medical issues.

"She had to take her time to get out of the car," said Jeff Lyman. "She was a small woman, under 100 pounds, and somewhat frail."

Joe DuBord knew Klotz for 40 years, and said his kids called her "Aunt Tracy." She took them out to dinner every year on their birthdays.

"It's important for us to bring closure to the situation and celebrate the life of our friend," DuBord said. "I have to think that somebody is going to come to the realization that they need to come forward and get it off their conscience and move on. It may have been an accident, but we'd really like to see that person come forward."
