Sunnyvale police have identified a suspect allegedly involved in a hit-and-run that killed a 28-year-old woman, but believe he has fled to India.
According to the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, Jennifer Flores was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 25-year-old Pawanjit Singh on March 25. Police believe Singh shoved Flores out of the car before running over her and fleeing the scene in the 1300 block of Socorro Avenue. Flores was transported to Valley Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries.
Investigation revealed that Singh boarded a flight to Dubai, India the day after the incident. Police obtained a million dollar arrest warrant on March 28, as well as a search warrant for Singh’s residence. During the search of the residence, police discovered the location of Singh’s vehicle, which has since been seized and is being processed for evidence related to the crime.
The FBI and U.S. Marshal Service have joined in the search for Singh, police say.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact Det. Fabian Monge at (408) 730-7131.
