A Stanton woman on the way home from her regular walk was critically injured in a hit-and-run Orange County car accident police said. The OC Register reported that the car accident happened on Oct. 20 along Magnolia Avenue at about 5 p.m. The victim was identified as 48-year-old Zhen Huang, a mother of two who had emigrated with her family from Hong Kong five years ago.
A spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said Huang was crossing Magnolia when she was hit by a blue, late-model, full sized Chevy pickup driven by a man who was making a left turn from Pacific Avenue. Investigators said skid marks indicate that the car was going about 25 mph. Huang was dragged for about 10 feet, police said. She was less than a block away from her house.
Investigators said Huang was in a crosswalk but veered out of it as a nearby curb. Police said if the driver had stopped to help Huang, he may or may not have faced charges. Because he fled, the driver now faces a felony hit-and-run charge.
Hit-and-Run Drivers Must Be Brought to Justice
My thoughts and prayers go out to Huang’s family. I understand from the news report that she came to the country in the hopes of giving her children a better future. Her daughter, Ying, who is a sophomore at UCLA said her parents do not have health insurance and have pleaded for any information that could help bring the hit-and-run driver to justice.
I share Ying’s sense of urgency in helping her family through what I must imagine is a horrific ordeal. As an Orange County personal injury lawyer, I have fought and won countless hit-and-run injury claims but am still appalled at the brazenness of these motorists who do not even have the basic compassion to stop and help a fellow human being.
