3 siblings injured by hit-and-run driver

July 8, 2018

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A 13-year-old girl was released from the hospital Saturday after a hit-and-run driver injured her and two siblings in Tacoma.

KOMO-TV reports the children were walking home Tuesday night when they saw headlights approaching from behind. Suddenly they felt an impact.

A 16-year-old boy suffered scrapes across his arms. His 11-year-old sister has a cut on her cheek from her fall.

But their 13-year-old sister got the worst of it. She spent several days in the hospital after suffering a lacerated liver and a concussion.

Their mother, Misti Singleton, says she’s angry that the driver didn’t stop.

A long tire track still shows where the small black car went off the road. A surveillance camera caught the driver racing over a speed bump down the block just after the incident.
