Family starts Gofundme for 21-year-old killed in hit-and-run

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Family of 21-year-old Kimberly Alissa Espinoza, is now raising funds to help with funeral costs after she was involved in a deadly hit-and-run on May 19.

Espinoza's loved ones said they are saddened by this event, and it has left their family devastated.

"We are asking the public and Lowrider Community & Car & Truck Scene to come together in unity to help pay for these expenses," stated the fundraising page.

Police have charged 25-year-old Leslie Lopez with collision involving death.

According to police, Lopez took off without helping Espinoza. Investigators said Espinoza was trying to cross the street at a non-designated crossing area when she was struck.

She later died at the hospital.

Her family tells ABC-7 they are seeking justice.

"If you commit a crime, face your consequences. That's not right. You know it's not right. What happened to my daughter. And I really hope.. I'm looking for justice for my daughter," said Crystal Fletcher, mother.

The family invites the public to a balloon release Wednesday at 7pm at Album Park in honor of Kimberly.
