Carlos Chavez Aguirre, 39, was killed in a hit-and-run accident Saturday, Jan. 11, according to Jay O’Neill, a Glendale Police spokesman.
Aguirre and a juvenile female were outside of a crosswalk on 49th and Glendale avenues when a pickup truck struck them around 7 p.m., O’Neill said.
“The vehicle that struck Aguirre and the female left the scene,” O’Neill said.
He said Aguirre died from injuries he sustained.
“The juvenile female’s injuries were not life-threatening,” O’Neill said.
“The Glendale Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating the suspect vehicle in this case,” O’Neill said.
“Based upon video and evidence from the scene, the vehicle appears to be a lifted, 2003 to 2006 Chevrolet Silverado single cab pickup with a custom dark brown paint color and oversized wheels. The windows on the vehicle are tinted and therefore no driver description has been determined at this point in the investigation,” O’Neill said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for potential reward, or the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000.
