The teen was crossing against the light on her way to Santa Ana College, and  multiple lanes of traffic had the right-of-way when she was hit, according to  Santa Ana Police Department Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, according to KTLA News.

“She crossed against the red … Obviously he didn’t see her. She jetted out in  front of him,” Bertagna said.

Officials said a Good Samaritan followed one of the fleeing drivers while calling 911.

“[We’re still looking for] the driver of the black vehicle. Gets out…goes over, looks like she makes contact with the pedestrian, and then leaves,” Santa Ana police Officer Weston Hadley said, according to CBS News.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call the SAPD at (714) 245-8665.

  1. It is horrible, but I’m just mad at this stupid girl running against a red light with all the cars. People needs to use common sense. Thanks to this girl, this guy whom in my personal opinion is innocent, is in jail. This girl is either suicidal or do not know how to use her brain.
