Earlier this month, I posted about a pair of sisters who were injured in separate Philadelphia hit-and-runs. The driver alleged to have struck the 10-year-old on March 7 has since turned himself in. However, the driver who struck her 14-year-old sister and fled the scene two days later remains free.
Philadelphia Police have since released an enhanced video and clearer still shot of the vehicle believed to have been involved in that case. Take a look.
What would be a nice first step is figuring out the make and model of the “White two door, unknown make, possibly newer model with tinted windows.” You can chat about it on Jalopnik right now, if you’re so inclined.
Call them if you know who is responsible for nearly killing a young girl. It’s the right thing to do.
The Philadelphia Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect who hit a 14 year-old female in Wissinoming.
The Philadelphia Police Department’s Accident Investigations Unit is investigating a hit and run auto vs. pedestrian which occurred on March 9, 2013 at or around 8:30pm, at the intersection of Torresdale and Cheltenham Avenue. At the time a 14 year old female was crossing Torresdale Avenue at Cheltenham Avenue when she was struck by a white vehicle traveling northbound. At the time of the accident the vehicle pulled over and a male driver exited for a brief moment before getting back in the car and leaving the scene. The vehicle was last seen north on Torresdale Avenue then east on Van Kirk Street. The vehicle should have damage to the hood being dented and the right side mirror knocked off.
Vehicle Description: White two door, unknown make, possibly newer model with tinted windows.
