Hit and Run Case Turned Over to D.A.

Philadelphia, Miss.

Philadelphia police say it will be up to the district attorney whether or not to charge a driver who allegedly hit a young child with her car, then left the scene.

Kayzlyn Thomas, age 3, died of her injuries at University Medical Center Wednesday, six days after she was struck in the parking lot of Philadelphia Game Stop Dec. 5. She was a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

Police say an Attala County woman turned herself in Thursday.

Neshoba County D.A. Mark Duncan says he has just received the case and doesn't know if charges will be filed or not.
