CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The North College Hill Police Department is looking for a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run that occurred Friday night.

Police say a black Honda Ridgeline with tinted windows hit a nine-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl in the 1500 block of Clovernoll Drive at approximately 5:00 p.m. and then fled the scene.

One woman says she stopped to help the mom of the children hit.

“I was coming home, once I made a right, maybe four or five houses down from the traffic light, there was a little girl - she was four years old, I believe, and her mother was laying holding onto her in the street, so I pulled over and parked my car to make sure she didn’t need CPR....she was bleeding from her head - another child was hit, I think it was her brother....he was sitting on the sidewalk,” said Rashawna Hicks.

Another neighbor, Briana Fulton, said that she sees people run stop signs in the subdivision “all day long.”

The children were transported to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, officers said.

The truck continued westbound on Clovernoll Drive and south on Hamilton Avenue, police said.

Although it is not confirmed by police if speeding or running the stop sign are factors in this case, Fulton says it’s upsetting to know that kids can’t play outside without the concern of drivers.

If anyone has information regarding the vehicle or the incident, police ask them to call the North College Hill Police Department at 513-521-7171.
