EUREKA – On Thursday, Sept. 27 , at 5:50 a.m., Terri Vroman-Little, 50, of Eureka, Jessica Hunt, 41, of Eureka, and another female of Bayside (whose identity is being withheld pending family notifications) were jogging northbound on west shoulder of Myrtle Avenue, south of Ole Hansen Road.
For unknown reasons, a 2005 Kia Spectra, driven by an unknown subject, left its lane of travel and struck all three of the female joggers.  Jessica Hunt and Terri Vroman-Little sustained major injuries due to the collision and were transported from the scene to St. Joseph Hospital.
The third female sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene.   Additionally, one of the jogger’s dog was struck and killed during the collision.  The driver of the Kia fled the scene directly following the collision.  The Kia was later found abandoned by Eureka Police Department officers on California Street in Eureka.
Myrtle Avenue was closed for approximately four hours due to the investigation.  This collision remains under investigation and several possible leads as to the identity of the driver of the Kia are being investigated.
