Police are searching for a hit-and-run suspect after a 28-year old woman was killed last night in Harlingen.
According to Harlingen police, Marina Martinez was the passenger in a vehicle that was struck off the 8000 block of West Business 83 near Stuart Place Road just after 8:00 p.m. Sunday night.
Witnesses say that Martinez was ejected from the vehicle, and was conscious, but was then struck by an older model white Ford F-150, killing her.
“He didn’t even try to brake, he was going about 60 miles per hour,” said Chriselda Siller, whose fiancee’s daughter-in-law was the victim. Siller, who lives approximately 1/4 mile from the site of the incident, arrived on scene just as the hit-and-run occurred.
