The driver who struck and killed a Santa Ana wife and mother as she crossed the street at a marked crosswalk remains on the loose today as the woman’s family pleads for him to come forward, the Orange County Register reports.
Zhen Huang, 48, was struck in the crosswalk and dragged for 15 feet by a light blue pick up truck that was turning left onto the street she was crossing, Magnolia Avenue. Huang was less than a block away from her home when she was hit. Investigators have determined that the truck was traveling at approximately 25 m.p.h, and may have been trying to beat a yellow light before it turned red. Authorities believe the driver was a male, whose truck had a work rack in its bed. If you have information regarding this accident, please call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 866-TIP-OCSD.
I offer my support and wishes for the Huang family as well as the OCSD as they continue their investigation, and I hope the individual that caused this terrible incident is found and held fully liable for his actions.
