Phoenix Police are continuing their search for a hit-and-run driver who killed two people in separate incidents on Saturday night, just after 10:30 p.m.

The first accident took place near 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road, where the driver of a Lincoln Town Car struck Nester Lopez, 17, as he was crossing 43rd Avenue. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities say Lincoln had been speeding southbound on 43rd Avenue in the center turn lane and he took off after the crash. The driver proceeded to run a red light near Osborn Road, colliding with a 2007 Scion Coupe. 28-year-old Edgar Ferral-Lopez was behind the wheel of the Coupe, and he had been entering the intersection on a green light when he lost his life.

The driver of the Lincoln exited his vehicle and fled on foot, abandoning his car at the scene. The suspect has yet to be located, and anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
