Investigators Tuesday sought the public’s help in identifying two drivers whose vehicles struck and killed a pedestrian in Lancaster.

The victim, a woman in her 40s, was struck about 12:50 a.m. on June 23 at the intersection of Avenue J and Andale Avenue, according to Detective Matthew Davis of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lancaster Station.

The woman was struck while in the roadway by an unknown vehicle that was westbound on Avenue J, Davis said.

“Vehicle debris found at the location indicates the suspect vehicle may possibly be a 2002-2007 C-class Mercedes sport edition with wide tires,” Davis said. “The vehicle is possibly green or teal in color.”

The vehicle will likely have front-end damage, possibly toward its left side, the detective said.

“Witnesses at the scene state a second vehicle, (a) gray sedan, hit the pedestrian while she laid in the roadway,” Davis said.

The second vehicle stopped momentarily before heading west on Avenue J, he said.

A witness said the vehicle was being driven by a Hispanic woman, 25-30 years old and an Hispanic woman of the same age was a passenger in the car, Davis said.

“This information is still being investigated and verified,” Davis said.

The pedestrian died at a hospital. Her name was not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the fatal hit-and-run was urged to call Davis at (661) 948-8466.
