PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police have released surveillance video of a vehicle they say was involved in the hit-and-run accident that critically injured a 15-year-old girl (see related story).
On Saturday, March 9th, police say Kylie Givens was at the intersection of Cheltenham and Torresdale Avenues in Wissinoming when she was struck by a white vehicle that fled the scene. The vehicle was last seen traveling north on Torresdale Avenue then east on Van Kirk Street.
Givens remains hospitalized with broken ribs and a ruptured spleen, which had to be removed after she was struck.
In a bizarre coincidence, Givens’ 10-year-old sister, Sarah, was also allegedly struck by a car just a few days before. The driver accused in that hit-and-run accident turned himself in to police on Tuesday (see related story). The 10-year-old sister suffered a severe leg injury as a result.
