Deputies release description of vehicle in fatal hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is releasing new details about a weekend hit-and-run on Gordon Highway that killed one teen and injured another juvenile. 

The car involved was a 1993 to 1997 Toyota Corolla, deputies said. It probably has front-end and driver-side damage. The driver-side headlight and the Toyota emblem from the front are likely missing, and the car may have after-market gold trim around the base. 

Deputies said they believe two other vehicles also were involved in the hit-and-run.

Two juveniles were trying to cross Gordon Highway around 11:39 p.m. Saturday when one vehicle hit them both, according to the sheriff's office. Two other vehicles then struck 14-year-old Zykeith Harris, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The other juvenile was transported to GRU for serious injuries.

All of the vehicles failed to stop. Deputies are working to identify the two other vehicles involved.

Anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the mentioned vehicles can contact the Richmond County Sheriff's Office at 706-821-1483 or 706-821-1080.
