Update: Search for hit-and-run driver who ran down 2nd grader still underway, in Franklin; Cash reward for info

Tips continue to pour in about the hit-and-run driver who ran over a seven-year-old girl, Saturday. The little girl was on a walk with her mom on Alexander Drive near Draper Court just after 7 pm. Her mom was pushing a second child in a stroller when the driver ran over her daughter.

During this horrifying ordeal, the mother and her second child narrowly escaped being injured after the driver also struck and toppled the stroller with the second child inside. The Franklin second-grader who was run over is now recovering at home with bruises, scrapes, and stitches.

The Franklin Police Department will continue our tireless pursuit of this at-large driver. Every tip that comes in brings us one step closer.

The 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.
