Police said 18-year-old Daniela Betancourt was using the crosswalk to catch the bus when a driver hit her but never stopped to help. Betancourt began using the crosswalk when the pedestrian lights were flashing. "Minutes and seconds count in life, so it hurts me that he left her there just like an animal," her aunt Rhonda Betancourt said. "She wanted to learn English and she did it," Rhonda Betancourt said. The family has set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral expenses and bring her back to Honduras.
