Police find car linked to fatal crash with horse

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita police say they're confident they've found a car involved in a hit-and-run collision that killed a man on horseback.

Police Lt. Brent Allred told The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/18PT3W6 ) on Thursday an anonymous tip led investigators to a Mercury Grand Marquis with heavy damage. The car was found Wednesday in a residential garage.

Forty-nine-year-old Lloyd Ferguson was killed the night of July 5 when the horse he was riding was hit by a car that sped off. A 6-year-old boy who was also on the horse was badly injured.

Allred says police believe the Grand Marquis was hidden in the garage after authorities released a photo of the make and model of the car involved in the collision.

No arrests have been made.
