Yesterday, a stolen vehicle ran into a 7-year-old child in Milpitas. The child died as a result of the crash. At least two individuals were in the car at the time: a San Jose woman (36) who attempted to flee on foot and a blonde man with a hat and glasses, race unknown, who drove away after the woman tried to flee.
Officers apprehended the woman. Today they have released her name: Kristalinna Pacheco. She’s being held at the Santa Clara County Main Jail on charges for Homicide, a fatal Hit and Run, and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.
Although officers couldn’t catch up to the stolen car’s driver yesterday, they located it today in Newark. It’s a white 2015 Lexus R350 SUV. Nobody was in it when the cops discovered it, but the Milpitas Police Department (MPD) had it towed back into town for evidence processing.
