Northern Territory Police say a person is in custody after a fatal hit and run accident near Alice Springs last night.

The body of a 51-year-old woman was found on the Stuart Highway, south of the town, at about 7pm.

Police say they have also found a white Toyota LandCruiser that they believe was involved in the incident.

Superintendent Brent Warren says police are still seeking witnesses to the accident.

He said he believed that a number of people would have been in the vicinity of the scene near the intersection of the Stuart Highway and Iparpa Road at the time.

The Territory road toll now stands at six, compared to nine for the same period last year.
