An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously.

256. Cheltenham Twp., Pa. April 7. 17-year-old girl struck and killed by a “silver or gray Chevrolet or GMC work van” a block from home, as her 12-year-old brother looked on.
If you have information, call the Cheltenham Township Police Department Highway Safety Unit at 215-885-1600, Ext. 476, or the anonymous tip line at 215-885-1600, Ext. 777, or to visit www.Cheltenhamtownship.org. There are a disgraceful number of these happening in Philly and its suburbs.
