Motorists sought in hit-run that hurt girl

Two vehicles were in­volved in an ac­ci­dent with a young ped­es­tri­an at a Holmes­burg Wawa on Aug. 30, but neither driver bothered to wait for help to ar­rive. In­stead, they fled the scene.

That’s why po­lice on Monday re­leased sur­veil­lance pho­tos of the al­leged crime scene hop­ing that someone will re­cog­nize the elu­sive mo­tor­ists.

The young ped­es­tri­an, an 11-year-old girl, was walk­ing in the park­ing lot of the Wawa at 7600 Frank­ford Ave. at about 4 p.m., po­lice said, when one car struck her and pinned her against a second vehicle.

The girl suffered a cut and bruise to her right knee.

Both vehicles fled the scene.

Po­lice de­scribed the strik­ing car as a sil­ver mid-size four-door sedan with a sun­roof. Its oc­cu­pants were a man and wo­man. 

The man was de­scribed as white, 18 to 24 years old and thin. He wore black shorts, a black tank top and a Bal­timore Ori­oles base­ball cap. The wo­man was de­scribed as white, 18 to 24 years old and with a me­di­um build. She wore a gray shirt and blue jeans with holes in the front. Her brown hair was worn “pulled back,” po­lice said.

The second vehicle was a white, four-door sedan with a sun­roof and was oc­cu­pied by a male, pos­sibly white or His­pan­ic, 18 to 24 years old and with nu­mer­ous tat­toos. He wore a white tank top and black shorts.
