CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Police say a 17-year-old female has been arrested and charged with the hit and run death of a 13-year-old boy.

The teen surrendered to police Tuesday morning after police released surveillance video from a gas station of the driver and her passenger.

The 17-year-old, from Mount Auburn, is accused of striking and killing Dayshaan Ballew, 13, on Saturday evening in Evanston. Ballew's 7-year-old cousin was also struck, but not seriously hurt.

The 17-year-old has been charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, driving without a license and violation of a juvenile court order. She is being held in the Hamilton County Juvenile Justice Center. Her 1993 Honda Accord has also been located and impounded.

On Monday, the passenger in the car turned himself in to police. He was not charged in the accident.
