SANDUSKY, Ohio — A 19-year-old international exchange student suffered life-threatening injuries after being hit in an intersection in Sandusky Sunday night.

Police are still searching for the driver involved.

According to a press release, the hit-skip crash happened at just before 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Camp and Pierce streets.

Zaide Guler Narmanli, 19, of Turkey, was riding her bike north on the sidewalk on the east side of Camp Street. She entered the intersection and was hit by a vehicle that was headed east.

The intersection is lighted, said police, and Narmanli didn’t have working lights on her bike. The driver of the car fled the scene.

Narmanli suffered life threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital in Toledo. She’d been working at a local water park coordinated through the Alliance Abroad Group.

Police say they have a possible lead, but they are looking for any other information regarding the crash.

Anyone with information on the crash or the driver is asked to call the Ohio State Highway Patrol at 419-625-6565.
