WALNUT (CBSLA.com) — Fifty-nine year old Lisa Park was on her way to play a round of golf at the Royal Vista Golf Course in Walnut Sunday afternoon when police say a driver in a tan sedan struck and killed her in her golf cart inside the crosswalk on Colima Road. Her husband who was a short distance behind ran to help, but it was too late.

Jessica Park says her mom rode a golf cart across that street countless times. She was always careful to wait for a green light.

Park says her mom worked long days at her sandwich shop in Irvine and always put her family’s needs above her own. She never got to say goodbye.

“I wish I could have told her, I love you thank you.” Park said.

Park and her family are asking the driver to do the right thing and come forward.

If you have any information please contact the CHP.

    I feel so sad for the family. For someone who worked so hard to support her family, this is just not right. She deserved so much more. I have been a customer of the Alton Cafe for a few years and Mrs. Park was always so considerate of her customers. For us regulars, she would remember the little special things we liked (extra pickles, wrapped sandwiches for walking back to work, etc.). I always thought it was neat when the son and daughter worked to help out. We’ll miss her for sure. God Bless you Mrs. Park.

    Oh man, that crosswalk is so dangerous because the cars go through there at 50 MPH or faster. They need to do something about it because this isn’t the first time someone’s been hit at that crosswalk. It’s happened many times.
