CHICAGO (AP) - Police are asking the public for information that helps them find the driver of a car that struck and killed a 5-year-old girl on Chicago’s southwest side.

Authorities say the car that hit Maria Gonzalez was a 2-door Honda Civic with a sunroof and spoiler and a dark finish that was dull or had a primer coat. The car also may have a front-end bra, sport muffler and a broken lamp.

Maria’s family says she was struck Saturday afternoon on a residential street after buying a treat from an ice cream vendor. The driver fled the scene.

Her father says the girl died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
