Police Search for Stanton Hit and Run Driver

by Gabriel Dorman on October 22, 2009

Police are still searching for the the Stanton hit and run driver that left a woman critically injured in the street after dragging her 10 to 15 feet before driving away. The Stanton hit and run driver is believed to have been driving a light blue Chevy pickup truck with an industrial rack in the truck’s bed.

The Stanton hit and run happened on Tuesday evening at about 5 p.m. at the intersection of Magnolia and Pacific Avenues. At that time, 48-year-old Zhen Huang was crossing Magnolia with the green light in the marked crosswalk when she was struck by the hit and run driver in the light blue Chevy pickup truck. Zhen Huang was dragged about 10 to 15 feet before the Stanton hit and run driver fled the scene.

Police believe there are a lot of witnesses to the Stanton hit and run due to the busy nature of that intersection. “We know there are a lot of witnesses — it’s a very busy intersection,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino.

Zhen Huang is in extremely critical condition and may not survive her injuries. Amormino added that “the suspect did not stop his vehicle so he was aware that he hit the victim and instead of offering aid.. he just drove off.”

Police are hoping the Stanton hit and run driver will do the right thing and turn himself into police. Until that happens, police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the Stanton hit and run driver.
