Nearly a month ago, a 12-year-old girl with Autism was hit and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Northeast El Paso.
Kianna Johnson, 12, was crossing the street in the 5600 block of Dyer near the Walmart around 1:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 5 when she was struck by an unknown vehicle, possibly a dark colored cargo van.
According to investigators, Johnson had Autism and was able to get out of her home undetected the night she was struck by the vehicle.
The driver of the van did not stop to render aid and Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.
