Jamul, CA – Woman Killed After Exiting Her Vehicle

Fatal hit-and-run crash in Stanislaus County

Jamul, CA (July 27, 2018) – In a tragic story, a woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash on Highway 94.  The crash happened in Jamul just before 3:30 am this morning.  Just moments before the crash, the woman had exited her vehicle and was walking around the car, along the westbound lanes of the highway.

At the same time, an SUV driven by an unidentified individual struck the woman as she was out of her vehicle.  According to witnesses, the SUV driver remained on scene momentarily.  As the woman was lying in the roadway suffering from serious injuries, the SUV driver fled the scene before police could arrive. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died.

California Highway Patrol is in charge of the crash investigation.  The roadway was shut down for nearly an hour while police were on scene. The SUV driver is described as being in his mid-30s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall.   He was last seen wearing light-colored clothing and a sweatband around his head.

Police are still actively searching for the suspect.  There is no additional information available at this time.

California Hit and Run Crash

By law, a driver is required to remain at the scene of a car accident.  The purpose behind the law is to allow drivers to exchange contact information with one another and so that police can investigate the crash.  An officer’s job is to determine the sequence of events leading to the crash and, in some cases, issue charges against the responsible driver.

When a person flees the scene of a crash, everything changes.  A crash investigation turns into a criminal investigation.  The driver or pedestrian remaining on the scene is left with a difficult situation.  They may be seriously hurt and they have no idea who caused the injuries.
