MIDLAND, Wash. - Two 12-year-old girls were struck, one fatally, in a hit-and-run crash in Midland.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office says the girls were walking along 104th St SE near 24th Ave E, which is about a block from Midland Elementary School, when a white flatbed pickup truck hit them and sped off.
One of the girls was killed in the crash, and the other was taken to the hospital, investigators believe she will live.
Surveillance cameras captured images of the truck, and Sgt. Moss says a witness reported the incident.
Later in the day, investigators found the truck, but it was abandoned.
Moss says deputies are in contact with the owner of the truck; however, they are still working to determine who was behind the wheel.
