An 8-year-old girl was killed by a hit-and-run driver in the Twin Cities late Thursday.
The girl, identified as Iliana Tasso, was a pedestrian at the time of the crash, which happened at Highway 252 and 66th Avenue N. in Brooklyn Center, according to the State Patrol.
Around 10:30 p.m., a driver in a white vehicle hit the girl then left the scene, the incident report says. The driver fled southbound on Highway 252.
Tasso died at the scene, the incident report indicates.
