A mother and son have been charged over the hit-and-run death of a 20-year-old woman in Sydney's inner suburbs on Thursday.
A third person, who police say was a passenger in the car, was also charged.
The victim was crossing Lachlan Street, Waterloo, about 2.15pm when she was struck by a vehicle that failed to stop.
