The collision occurred around 12:35 a.m. at North 10th and East Santa Clara streets. The woman, whose name is not yet being released, was walking east in the crosswalk on East Santa Clara Street when a white van traveling south on North 10th Street hit her, police said.
The van fled without stopping and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
“I feel sorry for her. I wouldn’t want to die like that. I wouldn’t want to be hit with someone taking off,” neighbor Sharra Jeffers said. Jeffers lives in an upstairs apartment that overlooks the intersection. She says she heard the collision and then watched as several officers flooded the area.
Police described the vehicle as being either a GMC or Chevrolet full-sized van with no markings, dark rims, and right front-end damage to the hood and right headlight.READ MORE: Man Accused Of Hacking Santa Cruz County Website In 2010 Arrested After Years On The Run
Thursday afternoon, San Jose police released photos and video that showed the suspect vehicle.
Investigators say unfortunately the video did not capture the van’s license plate or clearly show who was behind the wheel of the car at the time of the crash.
“We have no idea who the suspect is. We don’t even know if it’s a male or female. We don’t know if there were other people inside the van,” Sgt. Garcia said.
The pedestrian fatality is the third on San Jose city streets so far in 2019 and the fourth traffic collision overall.
Anyone with information about the suspect or vehicle is asked to call 911 or call Detective Brian McMahon at (408) 277-4654.MORE NEWS: Man Shot, Suspect at Large In South Park Neighborhood of San Francisco SoMa
