“He just left my mom there to die – left her friend there hurt really badly,” said the victim’s son, Anthony Campbell.
The victim, identified as Jennifer Blakey, a mother of two, was walking with a friend Wednesday evening along Sultanas Street, just before 10:30 p.m.
“Why would you do this to such a kid and such a mother? She was a very good person. Now, If I were you I would turn yourself in if you’re watching,” Campbell said.

“He needs to turn himself in. There’s a lot of people looking for him. To leave my wife and the mother of my son laying out there like that. He needs to do what’s right,” said Scott Campbell.
The CHP says the driver of a black Mustang veered into Blakey and a friend. Her friend survived but has major injuries.
Today, a small memorial grew at the location where Blakey was killed. Her loved ones tried to make sense of the tragedy.
“It’s a really sad day for her husband and her family and her son. We miss her. We just want justice. We just want whoever did this to turn yourself in,” says friend Rhonda Kowalczik.
The CHP says it’s likely the Mustang has damage to the front and left side. The vehicle also has a loud exhaust system.MORE NEWS: At Least One Hurt When Car Slams Into Light Pole In Sylmar
