“Did you ever stop to think how fast you were driving? Did you ever stop to think, ‘Oh, maybe I just hit something?’ Or maybe that was somebody’s daughter, sister or anything. I want to know deep down in your heart, you knowing that, is going to eat you up,” said Hernandez.

Police are searching for a tan or silver Suburban or Tahoe-style vehicle with a lifted chassis, slightly tinted windows with a Colorado license plate. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Edgewater Police Department.
