The boyfriend of a woman killed by a hit-and-run driver was devastated Thursday night at a memorial for the woman he has dated for 11 years and their unborn child he will never meet.
Victor Lopez said Maribel Gonzalez, 39, was eight months pregnant when she was killed.
"That's my love right there, love of my life," said Lopez, the father of what was to be their fifth child together.
Gonzalez' mother, Maria Silva, couldn't believe it.
"I don't want to believe it's her," she said. "I want to see my daughter."
Gonzalez was hit by a black Dodge Charger Wednesday night as she crossed West Highland Avenue at North Medical Center Drive in the crosswalk.
Police said the Charger didn't stop, but stalled out and caught fire nearby. A woman inside got out of the car and was picked up by another driver in another car before taking off.
