Chiero was walking through the community, with the assistance of her walker, Monday morning, heading to catch a minibus that would take her to the store when she was hit by the vehicle. She was walking east in the westbound lane of Southwest 33rd Street when she was struck. Her son, 50-year-old Joseph Chiero, believes that the driver swerved across lanes of traffic to hit his mother from behind. A neighbor came outside to find Chiero lying in the street.
Wednesday, the police released information that they had a car and a suspect in custody. The investigators would not release further information about what led them to believe this was the right car or driver. Investigations continue while the family of Chiero grieves over her wrongful death.
