PHOENIX — Police are searching for a hit-and-run suspect who struck a girl walking in a school crosswalk on Friday, the Phoenix Police Department said.

Around 4 p.m., police arrived to the scene of a collision on Roeser Road east of 16th Street where officers found an 11-year-old girl who had been hit by a car.
