DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Dallas Police have found a car in Northeast Dallas they believe was involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident, but they are still looking for the driver.

7-year-old Melany Valdez was the victim of the hit-and-run and was killed in the accident.

Witnesses say Valdez was playing outside last night and ran into to the street.

She was hit by a black 2008 Chrysler on Hemlock Avenue, near Park Lane.

A witness followed the car they saw hit Valdez to an apartment complex in the area.

Dallas Police worked with that witness to find the car, but have not found the person who may have been driving it.

Valdez was taken to Presbyterian Hospital by another adult who was also on the scene.  She was pronounced dead an hour later.

Valdez was a first grader at Jack Lowe Elementary.
