Hit & Run with fatality need public assistance


Hit_and_run_genericEL CENTRO — On Saturday, June 11 at 8:19 pm, our officers responded to a hit and run collision in the area of Waterman and Aurora by De Anza School.

The victim was a two-year-old child who was flown to Rady Children’s Hospital and later passed away due to her injuries. We post this information in hopes that the public will assist in the capture of those responsible.

We believe based on evidence located on scene, that the vehicle may have been a car (not SUV or Truck with higher profile) traveling northbound on Waterman from Ocotillo when it struck the victim.

The suspect vehicle might have visible damage to the right front portion of the bumper and may be missing some components from this front bumper area.

We ask that anyone who may have seen something while they were in the area come forward to help find the culprit.

If you have information related to this tragedy, please contact the El Centro Police at (760)352-2113.
