BAKERSFIELD (October 26, 2016)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a 16-year-old girl identified as Ashley Cruz suffered injuries following a hit-and-run collision at Highway 184 and Eucalyptus Drive.
The incident occurred Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. near Foothill High School.
Authorities disclosed that Ashley Cruz had been crossing the street inside of a crosswalk before being hit by a white colored sedan, possibly a Toyota.
