A woman was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Fullerton Thursday morning.

The collision occurred about 6:45 a.m. at Brea Boulevard and Bastanchury Road, according to Fullerton police Sgt. Brandon Clyde.

Police were working to identify the victim, who was possibly transient, Clyde said.

The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk at the time and was struck west of Brea, where it is a busy thoroughfare, Clyde said.

It appears the woman was crossing Bastanchury Road when she was struck by the westbound car, Clyde said. The driver kept going, but a portion of the vehicle’s blue bumper was left behind and investigators suspect the vehicle was a Toyota, Clyde said.

Anyone who may have seen the collision was asked to call investigators at 714-738-6812. Orange County Crime Stoppers will accept anonymous tips at 855-TIP-OCCS.
