A 12-year-old girl died late Monday following a hit-and-run collision in Castro Valley, police said.

The collision was reported around 4 p.m. Monday in the area of Crow Canyon and Manter roads.

Police said a man driving a lifted black Ford F-150 pickup truck struck the girl and fled the scene. The driver, described as a man between 25-35 years old, was last seen on Crow Canyon Road heading toward Interstate 580.

CHP officers reveal a photo of the car they suspect was involved in the fatal hit-and-run in Castro Valley.

Officials say the girl and her sister were coming home from school and were within sight of their home when a pickup truck turned left onto Crow Canyon Road.

Surveillance video caught the crash and the aftermath.

"After colliding with a 12-year-old, the suspect stopped, looked back and immediately fled," said CHP Officer Gabe Walters.

That intersection has been a problem according to neighbors.

"They’re always late for something, you’re just driving too fast you’re just not paying attention, and you don’t know there are kids walking around," said neighbor Anne Ponugoty.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 510-582-9028 or 911 to report it.
