    A mother is mourning the death of her daughter after she was hit and killed by a driver who fled the scene this weekend in Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

    Police said 33-year-old Stasha Lynn Faria was killed in a hit-and-run crash Saturday night on State Road.

    "She did not deserve to die this way," her mother, who did not wish to appear on camera, said Monday. "Somebody could have stopped, and maybe she would have lived. There's a possibility she could have lived."

    Faria was hit near the motel where she had been staying with her boyfriend. The driver took off.

    Margaret Newsum, 93, had no idea that the Camp Fire was rapidly approaching her Magalia home until her caretaker left for the day and she turned on the television. She was quickly rescued by her friend Dane Ray Cummings, who decided to break company policy and rescue Newsum with his Waste Management truck. KCRA reports.

    "When you leave her on the side of the road, without even a care," her mother said, "I don't know if I'll ever forgive that."

    Police returned to the scene of the crash Monday to continue investigating. Faria's mother is focused on her daughter, who has a daughter of her own.

    "I hope they catch them," Faria's mother said. "Or come forward. Have a conscience and come forward. It was a human life."

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kyle Costa at 508-910-1755.
