San Antonio Police are investigating a hit and run accident that left a nine year old girl dead, 1200 WOAI news reports.
The young girl, identified by police as Tatyana Babinoux, was apparently walking to school about 7:20 this morning when she was run over by a white pickup truck that did not stop. Police say she was dashing to catch the school bus at the time.
The accident happened in the 11700 block of Braesview Drive, just off Northwest Military Drive.
The child was rushed to the hospital in extremely critical condition, and she was later pronounced dead. Police told 1200 WOAI's Michael Board on the scene that the driver may have been blinded by the rising sun...and didn't see the little girl until it was too late.
Witnesses say the pickup, which was dragging a front bumper after the accident, sped away from the scene and police are looking for the pickup.
