The Suffolk County Police Department on Wednesday identified a woman killed in a hit-and-run crash on Monday as Alison Pfefferkorn of Sag Harbor.

Ms. Pfefferkorn was 41, police said. According to her Facebook profile, she had recently worked as a waitress and a bank teller. She was walking on Wicks Road in Brentwood shortly after 5 a.m. when she was struck by not one but two cars that both fled the scene, according to the Police Department.

Officers arrested two men in connection with the fatal crash, charging both with a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. Luis Vasquez, 59, was arrested about six hours after the crash, and Jairo Carrillo-Perez, 28, was arrested on Tuesday. Both men are from Brentwood.

Police identified Ms. Pfefferkorn on Wednesday afternoon. They are still seeking information on the crash, which can be reported to the county Police Department's major case unit at 631-852-6555 or to the CrimeStoppers tip line at 800-220-TIPS (8477). Calls are kept confidential.
