SAN GABRIEL (AP) — Police are looking for the driver of a pickup truck they say fled after fatally running down a woman and 1-year-old girl in a crosswalk in the Los Angeles suburb of San Gabriel.
Police Sgt. Cruz Hernandez tells City News Service the pair were struck Friday night as they crossed a street in the city 10 miles east of Los Angeles.
The 59-year-old woman was pushing the girl in a stroller at the time.
They were taken to a hospital where both were pronounced dead.
Witnesses told authorities the pair were hit by a silver Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme. Police found the vehicle’s grill emblem at the scene.
Hernandez says police hope video surveillance footage from nearby business cameras will lead them to the truck’s driver.
