ARNOLD (KDKA) — Police are looking for a driver following a hit-and-run in Arnold.

Witnesses say a white Chevy pickup truck blew through a red light at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 14th Street, hitting a 12-year-old girl who was on her bike.

“He hit the back end of the tire and she flipped over the bike and ended up over by the grate,” Amber Horm, an eyewitness, said.

She was taken to Children’s Hospital.

“She was crying for her daddy, so I bent down to hold her hand and try to keep her calm,” Diane Carter, a neighbor, said.

Police later tracked down the truck, but the owner claims he wasn’t driving and had lent the pickup truck to a friend.

He’s on the run.
