Police: Missouri Woman Killed In Springdale Hit-And-Run, Police Release Video Of Suspected Vehicle

SPRINGDALE (KFSM) -- Police are investigating a hit-and-run that killed a Missouri woman crossing Sunset Avenue on Sunday (Sept. 9) night.

Laura Garcia, 33, was crossing Sunset Avenue west of Pleasant Street about 9:12 p.m. when she was struck by a car, according to Springdale police.

Garcia was last seen at the Rose Stop, a convenience store right across the street from Heritage Inn where she was staying.

The owner of Rose Stop, Ali Golmirzaie, was the last person to speak with her before the incident.

“She left and I said, 'God bless you be careful please.'  A few minutes later I saw so many blue lights. I just jump out and I tell my wife something happened to that woman.”

That was the last time Garcia was seen alive.

Golmirzaie's wife, Rose, says she loves all of her customers and is saddened by what happened to Garcia.

“Every time people come in I say, 'I love you,' because you never know if you are going to see them again.”

Garcia was taken to Northwest Medical Center where she later died, police said.

The car left without stopping and police are gathering more information about the vehicle.

A video released by Springdale Police shows the car they are looking for.

Police posted the video to their Facebook page asking for help identifying drivers.
