‘Tell what happened that night,’ police plead after driver kills mother of 4

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Nearly two months after a fatal hit-and-run crash, police are pleading for the public to help find the driver who struck and killed a 30-year-old mother of four in Chesterfield County.

Selene Galvan-Santos was struck walking near her Marbrett Drive home in the Chesterfield Village apartment at about 3:20 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 30. She later died at an area hospital.

Friends were not sure why she was out walking so late at night, but said she was known to walk to the Wawa, about a half mile from her home, to get food.

Those loved ones described Galvan-Santos as a sweet, outgoing mother who loved her four young kids.
