Three teenage trick or treaters killed in hit and run accident

1414902327331_wps_2_As_the_search_continued_STwins Lexi Perez and Alexandra Perez (center) and Andrea Gonzalez (left), all aged 13, were in Santa Ana for Halloween when they were hit by a truck while crossing the road. Their names were released as police continued to search for two suspects who fled the scene while friends and family set up a memorial for the youngsters near their homes. The impact of the crash caused the girls to be thrown more than 100 feet . Two were pronounced dead at the scene and one died a short time later. Department Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said it was ‘hard to fathom’ why the pair had driven off ‘without calling, without stopping, without rendering aid’. Magaly Huerta, the twins’ aunt, said: ‘They killed what we love the most. Why couldn’t they stop the car when they saw my nieces? Why they couldn’t do anything? I know God will punish them sooner or later.’ A 2001 Honda CRV, the vehicle which is believed to have been driven into them, was found nearby after officers said the suspects sped off and headed north
