It's an area where a lot of people walk to the store, including the 57-year-old.

People said she walked to the grocery store regularly. She was using a walker to move past a clinic, where cameras caught her crossing the street Tuesday night.

Security guard Martin Ramos was there, right after Young was hit.

"I saw people in the floor try to pin the lady on the floor not to move," Ramos said.

He said Young was still breathing when he got to her, to help alongside other witnesses, but she didn't make it.

The video shows she was hit twice by a white Ford minivan.

"Hit her and you can see the bump, the car drive over," Ramos said.

When the van sped off, Ramos realized he had something that might help catch the driver.

"One person that was around there, he screamed, 'I tried to catch them but I couldn't. I lost them.' And then that's when I realized, 'Hey, wait! We probably got that in the camera,'" Ramos said.

While the driver was able to escape the scene, they can't escape the video.

"No matter what, that person could have stopped," Ramos said. "Now he's going to face more time for running away."
