Kim May “Ladybug” Barranco Obituary News: 59-year-old unhoused woman killed in Oakland hit-and-run.

A woman who was killed in a hit-and-run in Oakland on Tuesday has now been identified as 59-year-old Kim May Barranco, the Oakland Police Department confirmed.

According to reports, on Tuesday, just before 1 p.m., Barranco, who was homeless and referred to as “Ladybug” in the neighborhood, tragically lost her life after she was hit by a car between the 2300 and 2400 blocks of San Pablo Avenue.

The intersection’s fast-moving traffic presents a risk to pedestrians because it has two lanes in each direction and a large center median. A lot of people jaywalk for convenience. The neighborhood’s residents had complaints regarding the area’s lack of traffic policing.

Anyone with information or video evidence relating to the event is urged to come forward as the Oakland Police are actively looking into the matter.
