CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A 25-year-old man hit in Hyde Park over the weekend has died, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

Ryan Malm was pronounced dead Sunday at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, a coroner’s report shows.

He was hit, along with two other people, as they stood next to a gray Honda Civic in the 3100 block of Linwood Avenue around 2:15 a.m. Saturday, Cincinnati police have said.

The driver left the scene.

The other two people hit, Ella Lykins, and Valentena Carmosino, have non-life threatening injuries.

Delany Danielski, a longtime friend of the three victims, said she ran to the hospital after receiving the news.

“It was crazy. We didn’t know what was going on,” said Danielski. “It was just a lot to take in.”

Lykins and Carmosino are now home as they recover from their injuries, but they are both still shaken up, says Danielski.

“The two girls are doing alright,” said Danielski. “They’re just still very overwhelmed and shaken up by this and haven’t been able to talk about it yet.”

It is unclear if speed or impairment played a factor in the crash.

Officers did not say if they have a suspect.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.

Cincinnati Councilmember Mark Jeffreys released a statement, saying lowering the speed limit on Linwood Avenue is not enough.
