BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - A 17-year-old girl is dead after a hit-and-run Sunday night in Bond Hill.

Asia Denson was crossing the intersection of Reading Road and Avonlea Avenue around 10:50 p.m. when she was hit by a vehicle traveling northbound, according to police.

Denson was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

"She was nice, kind, sweet and she cared about people,” Miqual Glover said of her friend Denson.

Authorities say the male driver fled the scene. A person of interest was taken into custody several hours later for questioning, but District 4 officers say charges related to the accident have not been filed.

According to an arrest slip, 51-year-old Lawrence Dangerfield was arrested around 4 a.m. in the 1600 block of Rose Place, less than a half mile away from scene of the hit-and-run., under open warrants for driving with a suspended license and license plate display.

The slip requested a high or no bond for Dangerfield as he is “under investigation for a fatal hit-skip,” but has not been charged for the incident.

Records obtained by FOX19 NOW show Dangerfield has previously been convicted of five alcohol related cases, and at least were two DUI charges.

Witnesses described the striking vehicle as a silver BMW with heavy front damage, according to police. An unattended car matching that description was located by police and is being processed as evidence.

Investigators say the teen was not in a crosswalk, but that there is a bus stop in the area along with a sign reading “Watch out for Pedestrians.”

The investigation team says the car that struck Denson could have been going up to 80 mph at the time of the accident. 

If you have any information that can help police, call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
