“She was struck by a different vehicle that did not stop,” Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Thomas Gilliland said, according to The New York Post. “A lot of folks were very traumatized with what happened.”
Another motorist driving behind the mother told investigators they swerved to avoid hitting the teenager who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to The Daily Mail.
According to The New York Post, the girl’s mother is cooperating with investigators.
