Police on Wednesday were searching for a motorist suspected in the death of a woman in a hit-and-run accident.

Elizabeth Sandoval, 24, of Glendale was walking west across Glendale Avenue near Windsor Road when she was struck by a black Mercedes-Benz about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, said Officer John Balian, a Glendale Police Department spokesman.

Her body was thrown at least 75 feet, Balian said.

Police aren't certain if they will file charges against the driver, whom they want to interview, Balian said.

"The pedestrians were crossing on a red light, so traffic did have the right of way," Balian said. "However, it is a crime to commit a hit-and-run, and the motorist left the scene of the crime."

Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to call (818) 548-4840.
