Police Thursday sought the public’s help in identifying possible witnesses to a hit-and-run killing in West Covina that left a 30-year-old woman pedestrian dead.

Tian Liu of West Covina died at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center after she was struck in the early morning darkness Sept. 28 at the intersection of Azusa and Francisquito avenues, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office and West Covina Police Department.

Liu, who was found lying in the street unconscious, was treated at the scene by firefighters and taken to the hospital in “very grave” condition. She died about 5:15 a.m. the same day, authorities said.

Police have no description of the vehicle that hit Liu and left the scene.

“We believe a possible witness to the accident was seen exiting the 7- Eleven store at the intersection and stopped to render aid,” West Covina police Sgt. Tim Rodgers said.

“The witness was driving a dark colored Porsche Panamera and left prior to police arriving on scene. A second possible witness was driving a tow truck and turned on his flashing amber lights just north of the intersection and may have seen the accident.”

An image of the Porsche driver was captured on the store’s surveillance system.
