Based on witness accounts, police said the suspect is a white man in his early to mid 30s, between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 220 pounds with a pencil mustache and a short faded haircut.

The victim, identified as South San Francisco resident Teresa Gonzales, 44, was struck shortly before midnight in the 200 block of El Camino Real, according to police.

Officers responded and found her unconscious and lying in the street.

She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, police said.

The suspect vehicle was described as a black sedan similar to Toyota or Lexus made between 1998 and 2000 that likely has mild to moderate damage to the right front end and hood, police said.

The headlight lens on the right side is probably shattered. Police said the suspect and his vehicle were last seen in the 1100 block of Cherry Avenue in San Bruno shortly after the crash.

Gonzales’ daughter Andy Marie Gonzales created a GoFundMe page to raise money for funeral and cremation services.

The page at https://www.gofundme.com/teresa-gonzales-funeral-costs had raised more than $9,000 as of Tuesday morning.

Gonzales’ daughter described her mother as “a single mother of two who loved her family and friends and lived her life to the absolute fullest.”

“She was a firecracker and was so full of life, she was a friend to all and had the sweetest, most gentle soul,” she wrote.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900, an anonymous tip line at (650) 952-2244 or tips@ssf.net.
