A 59-year-old woman and one-year-old girl were killed in a hit and run crash in San Gabriel and police searched Saturday for a pickup truck believed to be involved.

The motorist struck the woman while she was pushing a stroller while walking in a crosswalk, San Gabriel Police Sgt. Cruz Hernandez said.

Paramedics rushed the San Gabriel residents to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, where they died from their injuries, Hernandez said.

“We’re going to try to obtain video footage from nearby banks to see if it captured the suspect vehicle,” Capt. Fabian Valdez of the San Gabriel Police Department told ABC7.

The vehicle believed to have hit the victims was described as a silver Chevy S-10 Extreme with decals last seen heading eastbound on Las Tunas Drive, according to Sgt. D. Gosserand.

The vehicle sustained major front end collision damage, Hernandez said.

“The Chevy emblem from the front grill was located at the scene of the collision,” he said.

Police responded at 9:30 p.m. Friday to the intersection of Del Mar Avenue and Live Oak Street and located the victims, Gosserand said.

A detailed description of the driver of the pickup was not available.

San Gabriel police asked anyone who saw the crash to call them at (626) 308-2828.
