The two victims, pedestrians, were crossing the street at the above address when they were struck by a white Chevrolet Tahoe whose male driver (Aguilar-Rodriguez) then fled the scene on foot, leaving some of his family members in the vehicle.  Paramedics transported the victims to an area hospital where the woman was later pronounced deceased.
