Modesto police say they are searching for suspects who fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run in Modesto Wednesday.
The collision happened at 7th and L Streets. When police arrived, they discovered that the occupants of a black Chevy SUV fled the area. A female driver in a red Mustang required immediate medical attention and was rushed to a local hospital where she died from her injuries, officials said.
Authorities say initial reports suggest that the Chevy was traveling eastbound on L Street at 7th Street before running through a red light and broadsiding the Mustang which was traveling northbound on 7th Street.
The Chevy had also been reported stolen to the California Highway Patrol, officials said.
Witnesses described the Chevy driver as a Hispanic or Black male adult in his 20’s, tall with a thin build. The two passengers were described as a Hispanic male and Hispanic female, both in their 20’s.
