Man arrested after hit and run leaves girl dead

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a young man has been arrested after a 10-year-old girl was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver in central Indiana.

Police say Renay Jenkins was walking Thursday afternoon in Kokomo when she was struck by a car. The driver fled the scene and the girl died at a hospital.

Police say 22-year-old Josh Cochran of Kokomo was arrested about a half-hour after the crash and he's preliminarily charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. Court records Friday didn't list a lawyer for Cochran.

The Kokomo Tribune reports an autopsy found the preliminary cause of death was blunt-force trauma.
