MANGUM, OK (KSWO) -Police in Mangum are investigating a fatal collision late Monday night that claimed the lives of a woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter.

According to the family, 59-year-old Wanda Perry and the child were outside, walking by their home, when a car hit and killed them. They were told that the driver took off running after the accident, and he still hasn't been captured. The car also hit two other parked cars on that street before hitting the woman and child.

Two of his passengers were injured in the collision.

Wanda Perry’s daughter said police still haven't said much to them yet, but she's praying for answers so they can get the closure her mother deserves.

"This is really hard, not only did I lose my mom, I lost my niece," said Jennifer Hunter, Wanda Perry’s daughter.

Hunter and her family gathered at their mother’s home like they always do for family gatherings, but Tuesday was much different.  

"She was out doing nothing but being a grandma, enjoying the day, and her life got taken in the blink of an eye. For what? We'll never know why," she said.

The family says Wanda loved spending time with her 15 grandchildren, and not only were she and the kids loved by the family, but the community as well.  

"All these people is our friends and we now everybody here and they've shown us nothing but love. I just want this community to keep loving each other," Hunter said.

One of Wanda's three sisters, Jan Johnson, says their family has always stuck together through thick and thin, and this tragedy only brings them closer.  

"I don't want this to happen to anybody, but we're hurting so bad," Johnson said.

The family is hoping to get more answers as police are investigating, however, the family said police say the driver is still on the loose, but the two passengers who were in the car are in the hospital in Oklahoma City.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help with final expenses.
