Oakland police announced Monday that they recovered the vehicle involved in a hit-and-run Friday in Oakland that killed a woman.
San Leandro mother Miesha Ellese Singleton, 40, was struck and killed at 3:22 p.m. in the 1800 block of 98th Avenue, police said.
A newer-model white Nissan Maxima was recovered Monday in Oakland and is believed to be the vehicle that struck Singleton, Oakland police Officer Johnna Watson said.
Watson said police appreciate tips from the community that led officers to the vehicle, which Watson said was not stolen. Police are not disclosing where they found the vehicle, at least not at this time.
Police are asking the driver of the Nissan to surrender and they’re also asking the community to provide information that might lead investigators to the suspect. A $10,000 reward is being offered for tips that lead to an arrest in the case, Watson said.
She said officers are working with the FBI and doing some DNA testing. Monday evening at a vigil near the location where Singleton was killed, her family asked for anyone with information about the driver to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to get in touch with the Police Department’s traffic investigation unit at (510) 777-8570.
