A seven-year-old girl was killed in a hit and run in Acworth Sunday night, police say.
The girl, who was autistic and has not been named by police, was hit by a car while walking in the eastbound traffic lane of New McEver Road around 10:16 p.m., Cobb police said. The girl had left her parents’ home in Acworth without their knowledge.
The girl was pronounced dead on the scene and her parents were notified.
