SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) -- One woman has died two days after being hit by a car in Southington. Now, police are asking for your help in finding the driver responsible for her death.
23-year-old Yan qiao Chen was walking along Queen Street with her two friends on Tuesday night. That's when police say the three women were hit by a car and the driver fled the scene.
Chen died on Valentine's Day. Her uncle flew all the way from Hong Kong to be by her side.
"I insist that I should be there when she goes away so that her soul can follow me to go back to Hong Kong," said Ni Quing Qua.
Chen's Uncle told News 8 he hopes that by speaking out, someone will come forward with information.
Police say they do not have many leads. They think the vehicle in question may be a white SUV.
"Somebody knows something. Somebody saw something. Somebody heard something that could break this case. For his family, we want this done as fast as possible," said Lt. Michael Baribault.
The 3 women worked at a restaurant near the scene of the hit and run. Police say they have not been able to question the other victims as much as they had hoped for at this point.
"I feel a little bit anxious and I think I should do something to move it forward," said Qua.
Police say the car that hit the women probably has some substantial damage. They're asking body shop owners to be on the lookout and if a car that comes in fits the description, contact the authorities.
Police conducted a traffic stop on Queen Street on Thursday night to talk to drivers who may have been in the area at the time of the accident. They say they are also examining surveillance video from nearby businesses.
For Chen's uncle, the wait for answers has already been too long.
"I wanna know the results. The, the person, immediately so I'd like to, to know him," said Qua.
