A pregnant woman was killed on Friday after being hit on her bicycle by an unidentified vehicle that fled the scene after the accident. Police are requesting the help of anyone who may have information about the identity or whereabouts of the driver that struck and killed the 31-year-old pregnant woman.

Jennifer Costlow was riding her bicycle southbound on Normandie in Gardena, shortly before midnight, when a driver struck her in the back with a dark, two-door car. The driver did not stop, driving past the woman and then turning onto 166th street. Costlow was taken to a hospital, but tragically she died within only two hours.

Costlow’s boyfriend was riding his bicycle with her, but was not injured in the bicycle accident.
