Police Looking For Hit & Run Driver Who Knocked Down Girl In Front Of Library

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Police are asking witnesses to come forward in a hit and run incident last month outside of the Carnegie Library in Sheraden that injured a little girl.

According to police, the accident happened along Sherwood Avenue around 5 p.m. on Feb. 10.

Investigators say the 8-year-old victim was standing in the street when a red car drove by and knocked her to the ground.

The girl suffered a head injury, but has since recovered.

Police are now looking for the driver and the red Toyota Yaris involved. Officials say the driver stopped at the scene and carried the little girl to the sidewalk, but then drove away.

“Our detectives have been trying to track down the other juveniles who were in front of the library at the time, and they’ve had a difficult time,” said Public Information Officer Sonya Toler.

Officers say the driver is a black female.

They are asking anyone who witnessed the accident or recognizes the car, to call them at 412-937-3095.
