Lillian Kay Waniata, 59 of Palm Desert, was traveling eastbound on Gran Via in a blue Chrysler 300, when she suddenly entered the golf course and collided into the wash basin.
The witness followed the vehicle to Avenida Martinez, where the driver entered a residence. The driver of the F-150, James Tucker, age 53 of La Quinta, was contacted and detained for the investigation of the Hit and Run.
“It goes without saying, we were extremely disappointed that so many family and friends of Alex and Calvin within our community who had knowledge of what took place that evening, were unwilling to come forward without subpoenas and a Grand Jury proceeding,” the Murks said in the statement.
The scene of human devastation was so severe, police officers were told to turn off their body cameras to prevent recording images of the two dead teens on the scene which could later be viewed by the public.
