Police on Wednesday sought the public's help to find the hit-and-run motorist responsible for killing a 28-year-old man and wounding a 16-year-old girl at a Muscoy intersection.

The two were returning home from a friend’s house Tuesday night near Highland Avenue and California Street when they were hit by a car, police said. The car’s right side hit Alcaraz in the chest. The left side view mirror clipped the girl, police said.

The two were walking outside of the crosswalk in a dark area, the CHP said.

The incident was captured by a liquor store camera.

California Highway Patrol officers hope the image of the vehicle passing a crowd leads to an arrest.

"It's a tragedy," Nancy Alcaraz, dealing with the loss of her brother in law, Arnulfo Antonio Alcaraz. "It's not something you think is going to happen to you."

Investigators are still trying to get a description of the vehicle.

"The only thing we have is a left front damage on the left side of the mirror which is light blue in color," said Sgt. Joe Ramos, of the CHP.

Nancy Alcaraz wants justice.

"If it was an accident ok but you have to come forward and you have to understand we have a family that is grieving," she said.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run was asked to call (909) 383-4247.
