Authorities have identified a suspect in a hit-and-run that killed a Hanford woman Wednesday night – a former $1 million lottery winner.
The California Highway Patrol is asking for help in locating Luis Gustavo Osejo, 33. He is known to frequent the Visalia and Dinuba, the CHP said.
Osejo was in a BMW that was moving at high speed when it collided with a Nissan driven by Brittany Ibarra Ramos, 29, who was killed.
Both cars overturned and caught fire. The occupants of the BMW fled the scene.
Anyone who has information about Osejo can contact the CHP’s Visalia office at 559-724-6767.
Osejo won $1 million playing the California Lottery in June 2012. According to the lottery, Osejo said then that he planned to use the winnings to buy a house and help pay off his mother’s house.
