Witnesses attempted to chase down a hit-and-run driver Tuesday evening after the man struck and killed a 7-year-old girl in Dallas, but police have only been able to locate the driver’s vehicle, according to the Dallas Morning News. Melanny Valdez was playing with her friends in front of her apartment complex around 9:30 when she was struck; she was taken to a Dallas hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Police are still attempting to locate the driver, described as a black man in his 30’s with a thin build, standing at about 5’5’’; they are hoping someone will come forward with information about the incident.
