A 21-year-old college student was struck and killed by a driver in Redondo Beach and police are looking for the driver of a black SUV, who may have been responsible, authorities said Sunday.
The victim was identified by family as Angelina Pinedo from Rosemead. Pinedo was a student at San Francisco State University, according to her family.
The crash occurred at 9:05 p.m. Saturday on the 1500 block of Aviation Boulevard at the intersection of Grant Avenue, according to Lt. Shawn Freeman of the Redondo Beach Police Department.
Pinedo was crossing from the west sidewalk on Aviation at Grant when she was hit by a vehicle traveling south on Aviation Boulevard. Instead of stopping, the motorist continued driving south on Aviation, Freeman said.
Pinedo died from her injuries, but it was unclear whether she was pronounced dead at the scene or elsewhere.
Police described the suspect vehicle as a black Audi Q5 SUV with the partial license plate 7MB and damage to the front windshield and hood.
