Sisters killed in Baton Rouge hit and run; police still looking for driver
BATON ROUGE - Police are looking for a driver who fled a crash scene after killing two siblings in a hit and run early Thursday morning.
The Baton Rouge Police Department said the crash happened around 1:30 a.m. on Lobdell Avenue just north of Jefferson Highway. The victims, identified as 21-year-old Srae Wagner and 19-year-old Kimberly Polson, died at the scene.
A GoFundMe posted by a relative said the two were walking to a gas station when they were hit.
Police said both victims were from outside the state and that investigators are in touch with family members in Missouri.
L'Jean Mckneely, a spokesperson with the BRPD says the public will have to get involved to help solve this case. He also wants the driver to turn themselves in.
"I would like for them to come forward and explain why they left the scene if they know that they struck someone or if the didn't because there needs to be some closure to this," Mckneely said.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact police at (225) 389-7819.
