LOMA LINDA, Calif. - Two close California families are asking for prayers after a 12-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl were killed following a horrific crash involving an ATV and a hit-and-run driver in San Bernardino County.
The two children, 11-year-old Christina Bird and 12-year-old Jacob Martinez, were riding an ATV when were hit by another vehicle at the Stoddard Wells OHV area in Apple Valley. The crash killed Martinez and Bird was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.
"How could you not stop?" said Felicia Nunez, Christina's mother. "What if this was your family?"
The family says the two kids were hit by a side-by-side UTV. When the family arrived at the crash scene, Christina and Jacob were next to each other – but the suspect driver was nowhere in sight.
Now, the family is pleading for the suspect hit-and-run driver to be found or come forward.
"Find these people that just left two children torn up on the floor and the road just to die. With no soul or heart in their body to even just try to stop and call for help," said Ernie Nunez, Christina's uncle.
CHP is now looking for an orange Razor Turbo S. As of Tuesday night, no arrests have been announced in the deadly crash.
A GoFundMe page has been launched to help the two victims' families:
