A 13-year-old girl remained hospitalized in critical condition Wednesday after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Glendale, and authorities are seeking public help to locate the suspect.

The vehicle struck the pedestrian at about 3:15 p.m. Friday in the 800 block of East Garfield Avenue, between Mariposa and Adams streets, according to the Glendale Police Department.

The motorist stopped the car “momentarily before speeding off” eastbound on Garfield, police reported.

Authorities do not have a suspect description, but the vehicle was a black 2019 or 2020 Lexus GX460, police reported. The SUV likely has damage to its right front headlight assembly or right front bumper.

Anyone with information about the suspect was encouraged to call the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
