CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Division of Police Accident Investigation Unit has released new information in the deadly hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a 14-year-old girl.

Chelsea Hill was hit and killed around 1:00 a.m. on Memorial Day at the intersection of E. 40th St. and Carnegie Ave.

Police said based on video evidence, they believe the suspect’s vehicle is a well-maintained 2000 or newer, dark colored, higher end car with noticeable damage to the right front area, specifically to the headlight and fog lamp assembly.

Investigators have collected arts debris with serial numbers visible and are working on narrowing down the make and model.

“Nobody should have to go through this with their child,” said Annette Hill, the girl’s mother to FOX 8 over the weekend.

There is now a makeshift memorial near the intersection where Hill was hit and killed. The girl’s family tells Fox 8 somebody out there must have seen something that night.

“Turn yourself in. Get peace with your own self, because I know this got to be eating at them, or they are heartless,” said Melissa Hill-Nance, Chelsea’s aunt.

Anyone with information relative to this incident is asked to contact Accident Investigators at 216-623-5290.
