INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are hunting a hit-and-run driver who struck a woman and her 8-year-old granddaughter in an Inglewood crosswalk, breaking the child’s leg and leaving the older woman in a coma.

Police say the dark green or black Nissan Altima ran a red light and struck the victims around 5:30 a.m. last Wednesday.

Eight-year-old Emonie (Eh-MAH’-nee) Baham and other relatives say Mae Baham tried to push her out of the way and took the brunt of the impact.

Emonie tells KCBS-TV (https://cbsloc.al/1HF8jdW ) she flew over the car and then saw her grandmother lying in the street. Emonie says she called her grandmother’s name three times but she wouldn’t answer and her nose was bleeding.

Police say the car probably has front-end damage and possibly a broken windshield.
