STAMFORD, Conn. -- Two sons of a Stamford woman who was killed Easter Sunday in a hit-and-run accident are struggling to come to terms with their loss, according to the Stamford Advocate. 

Margarita Gonzalez, 70, was hit while trying to cross Woodland Avenue on Sunday, April 20. The driver, Yolanda McDowell, crossed a double yellow line, struck Gonzalez, then crashed head-on into another vehicle before fleeing the scene, police told the Stamford Advocate. 

Angel Gonzalez, 47, an 18-year veteran of the Stamford Police force, said he still can't understand how his mother was killed with such disregard, the Stamford Advocate said. 

Services for Margarita Gonzalez will be held on Saturday, April 26, at 10 a.m. at St. Mary Parish at 566 Elm St. in Stamford, according to the Stamford Advocate.
