Family remembers victim of deadly hit and run crash

A Valley family is asking for the public's help in solving a deadly hit and run incident in North Phoenix.

This family is completely heartbroken and left wondering who could have left 53-year-old Jesse Lyndsey for dead on the road, knowing they hit her. The family is now hoping somebody, somewhere knows something that will lead to an arrest.

"It's affecting and hurting a lot of people," said Sherry Walker.

On Friday, the family got a phone call saying their loved one had been hit by a car at around 6:30 p.m., at an intersection near 15th Avenue and Peoria. Lyndsey was rushed to the hospital but later died.

The family says Lyndsey was visiting friends in the area and was headed to the corner store when she was hit. The driver of the car allegedly took off, but Phoenix Police officials said the driver left a big piece of evidence behind -- the bumper to their car, which belongs to a 2011 Dodge Charger.

Meanwhile, the family is still wondering who could just leave Lyndsey for dead.

"I would like to know why they didn't at least call 911 on their way out," said Jessie McBride. "It might have saved her life."

"How can they sleep at night?" said Walker. "How can they do that to a human being?"

Lyndsey, a mother of two and grandmother of three, will be remembered as a fun-loving person who loved being around family. The family is urging anyone with any information to come forward.

"You need to come forward. You need to turn yourself in," said Walker. "She was loved and it's the right thing to do."

Anyone with information on the case should call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
