A search is being made by authorities for a hit-and-run driver who fatally struck a 14-year-old girl as she walked in a marked crosswalk in San Bernardino.
The victim was identified by family members as Jade Maldonado. They said Jade was on her way to class at Pacific High School when she was killed. The teen at about 7:10 a.m. was walking north on Pacific Street at Glasgow Avenue in a crosswalk when an SUV traveling 40 to 50 mph failed to yield and hit her.
A news release by California Highway Patrol said the female driver of the older model GMC did not stopped to assist the badly injured girl and instead fled the scene.
