    Mary Wong, Oct. 8, 1960 - Jan. 29, 2024

The victim of the hit-and-run crash on Huntsman Boulevard has succumbed to injuries inflicted on Dec. 23 (see Connection, January 18-24, page 2).

Around 7:53 p.m. on Dec. 23, officers responded to the intersection of Huntsman Boulevard and BridleWood Boulevard for a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle that fled the scene before police arrival. Preliminarily, detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit determined Mary (Fu-Tzu) Wong, 63, was crossing Huntsman Boulevard from west to east within the crosswalk when she was hit by an unidentified vehicle. Wong was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

On Jan. 29, detectives were notified that Wong had died from injuries she sustained in the crash. The investigation into the crash continues as detectives seek to locate both the vehicle and the driver involved.

Speaking on Jan. 30, Mary Wong’s son David repeated his plea for the community’s help in bringing the hit and run driver to justice. He said, “Progress so far is affected because there aren’t many traffic cameras around here, except for major highways. It takes time and effort to find nearby ring cameras or somebody who may have seen something. Also calling body shops and contacting neighbors along the possible travel route.“ Community members are reaching out to assist by making calls and talking about the need for information to support the police efforts.
