A 13-year-old girl continues to recover after she was severely injured in a hit-and-run crash this past November.

On Nov. 16, 2012, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a park in the 2500 block of Westlane Road on the city’s northwest side.  When they arrived, they found Karmyn Jones suffering from significant injuries.

Police said the girl was struck by a white Chevy Suburban, which fled the scene after the incident.  She was transported to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in critical condition.

Fox59 News spoke with Jones’ mother, who said her daughter recovered in the hospital for over a month.  Jones lost a kidney and has scars from the incident.

IMPD continues to search for the driver of the Chevy Suburban.  The vehicle was described to be a 1992 to 1999 model with the letter “W” in the license plate.  A black male was believed to be driving the vehicle.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact police at (317) 327-6549 or Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-8477.
