Two 12-year-old girls were crossing the street in a Roosevelt crosswalk on March 15 when they were hit by a vehicle that ran a red light.
The driver of the vehicle then sped away from the scene at 600 East and 200 North.One of the girls was flipped over the car while the other girl was thrown about 30 feet. She suffered skull fractures in three places and continues to suffer from severe memory loss. Doctors say she will not be able to return to school until fall.
The only evidence left at the scene of the accident is part of the vehicle's outside rear view mirror and some glass fragments. The vehicle was described as light blue or silver. The windshield may be shattered and there could be some body damage.
