The murderous plague of hit-and-runs continues, this time taking the life of a Gardena woman and her unborn baby early this morning.
According to the Daily Breeze, 31-year old Jennifer Costlow was riding with her boyfriend on Normandie Avenue at Gardena Blvd shortly after midnight when she was hit from behind by a dark colored car. The former Riverside Poly High School cheerleader was four months pregnant.
Reports indicate that she was revived at the scene and taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
In a stomach churning coda to the story, the Breeze says that a man believed to be her brother later visited the scene of the collision, and became visibly upset when he found “remnants of the accident, including his sister’s blood on the sidewalk.” Firefighters came to clean it up after the police were notified.
Any witnesses are asked to call the Gardena police at 310/217-6135.
