A female driver hit a 12-year-old in Bonn-Plittersdorf with her car and continued on her way without properly checking the child’s wellbeing.

The police are asking for witnesses to come forward in connection with another hit and run incident, this time in Plittersdorf, last Saturday. According to the investigators a 12-year-old girl wanted to turn from the Plittersdorfer Straße via the Beethovenallee onto the Arndtplatz.
