'Turn yourself in:' Family of hit-and-run victim wants justice '

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The family of a hit-and-run victim is asking the driver police say is responsible to turn himself in.

Angel Vega, 20, and Meghan Clevenger, 24, were killed when a driver ran a red light on the east side early Sunday, July 15 at the intersection of Speedway and Wilmot.

"Turn yourself in. You don't know the pain and heartache you have caused, and we just want to hear you say you're sorry," said Blanca Salcido, Vega's cousin.

"He didn't deserve this and we just want to hear him say he's sorry and we want justice for Angel, and for Meghan as well," Salcido said.

Vega's mother stood by Salcido at a car show at The Dive Bar & Kitchen on Palo Verde Road.  It was the second car show Saturday that the family had attended, in an effort to raise money for funeral expenses and honor Vega.

Salcido said Vega was working to save money to buy his own car.

"If Angel can hear us, we just want him to know we love him, and we are going to do everything we can for him," Salcido said.

The TPD said Yacks is 5-foot-10, 170 pounds with brownish-blonde hair and blue eyes. He has multiple tattoos, including "AZ" on the center back of his neck, "9-29-11" on his left wrist and a mural on his right leg.

Yacks should be considered armed and dangerous. If you see him or have information on his whereabouts, call 911 immediately and do not approach.

Vega's family held another car wash Sunday, July 22, at All Star Window Tinting on South 12th Avenue to continue to raise money for the unexpected finances.

"We're just trying to get him to lay, in peace," said Salcido.
