A mother-of-three has been killed in an alleged hit and run, as police question her ex-husband over her death.

Gayle Potter, 46, died after being hit by a vehicle on a private property in the country town of Traralgon, two hours south-east of Melbourne, about 8.30pm on Tuesday. 

Ms Potter’s ex-husband was reportedly arrested by police soon after and taken in for questioning over the incident.
