The crash involved major injuries and the victim was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment, but despite efforts of doctors it was reported that she died of those injuries yesterday.
Police are still searching for the suspect hit-and-run driver in a pickup truck who struck Darlena Santiago and left her critically injured.
