To date, the fundraiser has reached $ 23,000 of the $ 25,000 goal that was set as a goal. The comments of people who generously contribute are moving. One of the donors wrote:
“I would have stopped to help too, this lady was clearly kind-hearted and the world will miss her. To the family of her left behind, words and donations won’t ever replace the void left in your hearts after losing such a wonderful person. Sorry for your loss ”
The family mourns the loss of Juliana Ramos, a young woman whom they describe as someone who liked to help people. That is why she was studying to become a very good health professional.
Furthermore, she was the mother of three children, one as young as 4 months old, with whom she loved spending time and playing. It has been reported that the youngest of her children was in the vehicle where her mother was traveling before the accident.

ACCIDENT ON THE HIGHWAY
It was around midnight on February 10 as Ramos was traveling down Highway 99 in Fresno California. She noticed a vehicle that apparently had hit a tractor-trailer and got out of her car.
Local police say Ramos got out to help the driver of the crashed Hyundai Elantra. The Nissan Rogue vehicle where Ramos was traveling was parked in the divider center, near the Nissan.
TRAGEDY IN A SECOND
At that moment when Ramos got out of her vehicle to go to help the driver of the Hyundai, another vehicle a red SUV, she passed between the two vehicles hitting the woman and causing her fatal injuries on impact.
The person driving the SUV stopped, got out of the vehicle for a few moments, and then returned to her vehicle, got in, and sped away from the scene. The car involved is a red or burgundy SUV that the police are looking for.
GOOD MOTHER AND GOOD PERSON
Her sister, Claudia Sánchez, is devastated, which is what emerges from her statements. Sánchez said that her sister was a good mother, a good person, very happy, who she liked to help and that she did not deserve this.
The person in the vehicle that Ramos stopped to help was taken to a hospital with serious injuries where she is still found, although there are no further details of her health.
FLEEING FROM THE SCENE
While Ramos stopped to help a stranger in trouble, the driver of the SUV who struck her only stopped for a few moments before fleeing the scene of the accident.
Police are searching for a new Ford Explorer-type SUV possibly with damage to the front end, it has been requested that anyone with information about the vehicle or the accident contact the police.
