A 16-year-old girl died on Thursday after falling victim to a hit-and-run in the Negev town of Rahat.

The girl, Rula Suleaman al-Huzeil, was returning home from school. As she stepped onto the pedestrian crossing on Rahat’s main thoroughfare, a Toyota hurled toward her. The driver collided into the girl, slammed on the brakes, and then abandoned his vehicle.

Al-Huzeil was rushed to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba in critical condition. Doctors were unable to resuscitate her, and she was pronounced dead moments after arriving to hospital.
