Police are looking for help to identify a hit-and-run driver who killed a 54-year-old Oakland woman Friday night.

The woman, identified as Michelle Marbley, was riding an electric scooter along the 23rd Avenue late Friday night when a vehicle struck her in the intersection at Foothill Boulevard shortly after 10 p.m.

Witnesses told police a gray four-door sedan was driving on the wrong side of Foothill Boulevard and ran a red light at the 23rd Avenue intersection. Marbley, who was traveling north on 23rd Avenue with a green light, according to witnesses, was struck by the sedan and suffered a severe head injury.

Paramedics rendered aid but were unable to save her life, police said.

The investigation is ongoing and police ask that anyone with information please come forward by calling the department’s traffic investigation unit at (510) 777-8570.
