Investigation continues after hit-and-run crash leaves woman dead in north Phoenix

Phoenix police are investigating after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run near 31st Avenue and Northern on Friday night.

The crash happened at around 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 14. The woman was crossing Northern Avenue on the crosswalk when she was hit by a car heading westbound "at a high rate of speed." The victim died from her injuries at the scene.

The car, described only as a light-colored vehicle, fled the area and continued to head west down Northern.

The investigation is ongoing, and no suspect information was released.

Family looking for answers

The victim has been identified by her family members as 43-year-old Andrea Zamarron. Her brother, Robert, watched Phoenix Police clean up the scene early Saturday morning.

"It's like a horror movie," said Robert.

Robert said he recently saw Angela, who battled depression and drug addiction. Robert had been trying to get Angela help.

"I know it seemed like some junkie on the street, but she was loved," said Robert. "I loved her a lot. That was my big sister."

Angela was a mother of ten. Her oldest daughter, Dominique Milligan, said she will miss her mother's voice and laughter.

""She was my best friend, and she was everything to me," said Dominique. "I was always at home, so I always have good memories of her, no matter what."

Angela's mother, meanwhile, is heartbroken.

"As a mother, I wish I would’ve been me, not her," said Bertha Zamarron. "Any time in my life, I give my life for her any day."

Bertha said on the same day she lost her daughter, she also lost her brother 16 years ago in a hit and run in Phoenix.

Angela's loved ones, meanwhile, hope the suspect in Angela's case will come forward.

"I wish that they come forward. Just come forward," said Robert. "It will be worse if you stay and they catch you. It'll be worse on your part. Just come forward."
