Last Saturday, four girls were walking along a road in the Lucerne Valley. Three of them never made it home thanks to a hit-and-run driver. NBC Los Angeles reports.
They were walking along the northbound lane of Camp Rock Road when they were struck. The three fatalities were girls aged 11-13, two of whom were in wheelchairs at the time of the crash. A fourth girl, 14 years old, faces life-threatening injuries.
Her mother stated to the media that both of her daughter’s legs were amputated in the accident and she’s having liver and kidney troubles.
The California Highway Patrol stated that a white 2002 Chevrolet Silverado carrying two people drifted into the shoulder where the girls were walking around 10 p.m.

The car stopped at the scene and inspected the damage with a flashlight before they fled on foot. Neither of them called 911 for help. The CHP has asked for help from the public. If you know anything about this crash, contact Officer L. McAllister at the Victorville CHP Area office at (760) 241-1186.
Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the victims. Hit-and-run is the act of a coward, especially if you know you hit someone and still left the scene. We hope the police catch the responsible parties so the families can face the killers of their children.
