A hit-and-run driver struck and killed 68-year-old Cecilia Shu while she walked in the neighborhood of Oceanside, CA and now her family wants answers.
According to ABC10 News, Shu died on the scene that morning. Police said a black Honda SUV drove onto the sidewalk and hit her as she was on her daily walk. The car then made a U-Turn and sped off.
“Not a forgivable action … Don’t think it was fair that she was taken away from us,” said Enid Shu, the daughter of Shu to ABC10 News.
Police believe the collision that killed Cecilia was accidental and speed may have been a factor. They said the same car has been seen speeding in the area before, and the driver may live in the Oceanside area.
Enid Shu described her mom as a funny, optimistic woman enjoying her retirement. Enid just had a newborn, but her mother never had the opportunity to meet her new grandchild because of her death.
“Please call authorities with any information. We need justice for someone who has taken the life of my mom. That person needs to take responsibility and accountability for what they’ve done,” said Enid Shu to ABC10 News.
Police said the vehicle is believed to be a black, 2019-2022 Honda HR-V. The vehicle would have damage to the front bumper and grill.
Anyone with information is asked to call Traffic Collision Investigator Clint Bussey at (760) 435-4412 or via email at [email protected].
