Help Catch The Hit-And-Run Driver Who Struck A 14-Year-Old Girl Two Days After Her Little Sister Got Hurt In A Separate Hit-And-Run

Law enforcement agencies from across the U.S. have reached out to Jalopnik for help with car identifications since your input was "critical" to solving a hit-and-run last year, among others.


Today, we bring you an unusual story involving a pair of hit-and-runs in Philadelphia from last week.

What was unusual wasn't the crime itself, but the victims themselves. It's not a regular occurrence to hear about a 10-year-old getting struck by a hit-and-run driver on a Thursday afternoon and then her 14-year-old sister suffering that Saturday night. But, that's exactly what happened to Sarah and Kylee Givens on, respectively, March 7 and 9.


While the driver who struck 10-year-old Sarah has since turned himself in, Philadelphia Police are seeking the public's help to track down the hit-and-run driver who left Kylee with a ruptured spleen and broken ribs.

They released a video on Thursday afternoon hoping they could do just that. A portion of their press release reads:

The Philadelphia Police Department is seeking the public's assistance in identifying the suspect who hit a 14 year-old female in Wissinoming.

On March 9, 2013, at 8:30pm the complainant was at the intersection of Cheltenham and Torresdale Avenue when she was struck by a white vehicle that fled the scene. The vehicle was last seen traveling north on Torresdale Avenue then east on Van Kirk Street. The complainant received serious injuries as a result of this incident.

Vehicle Description: White two door, unknown make, possibly newer model with tinted windows.

Thoughts? Hunches? Let's talk it through and see if we can help them out.

I think the light reflection is distorting the shape too much to be able to ID it from the body, so the glasshouse is key. The thing that comes to mind might be the Camaro. The shape of the side glass seems to fit, and that would make it a newer 2-door. Plus, the Camaro had been off the market for a long time and the new one has no physical similarity to any of the old ones, so it's entirely possible for non-car people to not be able to ID it at first sight.
