Police Seek Driver in Fatal Hit and Run

September 09, 1998

Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed an 82-year-old woman as she crossed a street, a California Highway Patrol officer said Tuesday.

Jennie Lozano was crossing a marked crosswalk on the west side of Whittier Boulevard near Eastman Avenue about 5 p.m. Monday when she was hit by a tan and green Chevy or Ford pickup going north, said CHP Officer Bill Preciado.

The driver made no attempt to stop and "just floored it and took off," Preciado said.

He asked anyone with information to call the CHP at (213) 669-4474.
