TEMECULA, CA (August 4, 2021) Perla Medina, 37, lost her life in a possible hit-and-run on I-15 in Temecula by an unidentified driver.

CHP Officers responded to an accident around 4:30 A.M. on Saturday, July 31, at the Rancho California Road overpass.

Furthermore, witnesses claimed to see a pickup, possibly a Ford F-150, stopping at the center median near the scene. In addition, the pickup driver appeared to be emotionally distraught as he was seen standing outside the vehicle “jumping up and down frantically” before driving off.
