Search on for Suspect After Mother, Son Killed in Hit-and-Run Collision in Oakland

A mother and her son were killed, and another man seriously injured, after being struck in a marked crosswalk by a vehicle in Oakland's Foothill neighborhood on Saturday evening, according to police.

The collision occurred around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of 26th Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, police said. The three pedestrians were walking in a marked crosswalk when a two-door Mercedes-Benz struck them and fled the scene. The mom, identified as Alma Soraya Vasquez, and the child, 6-year-old Angel Garcia-Vasquez, were pronounced dead.

"I have two kids left," husband and father Anselmo Garcia said. "That's it. I lose my whole family. I need some help, please. I need help."

Police said the vehicle was located in another part of the city, but the suspect has not been captured. The suspect's identity wasn't released.

The other victim, Garcia's 20-year-old brother, was in critical condition early Sunday morning.

All three pedestrians that were hit are Oakland residents, police said.

A GoFundMe page has been created for the family.
