Franklin Police searching for hit-and-run driver who ran down 2nd grader walking with her mom

Franklin Police are seeking information about a hit-and-run driver who ran a seven-year-old girl over. The little girl was on a walk with her mom on Alexander Drive near Draper Court, just after 7 pm. The little girl’s mom was pushing a stroller with another child when the driver struck and then ran over her daughter before fleeing from the scene. The victim is a Franklin second-grader. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance with serious injuries.

The at-large suspect vehicle is an older model dark green 4-door, similar to the 1997 Honda Accord LX seen here. Residents who live in the area of the crash are asked to check their home surveillance cameras for anything that could help lead police to the driver. A cash reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information in this case.
