Cobb Police said the suspect in an Acworth hit-and-run that killed a seven-year-old girl is believed to have owned a vanity plate similar to the one pictured here.

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.

Police are now searching for a vehicle with damage to its front end, including at least one of the headlights. Investigators also believe the suspect’s car is missing a University of Alabama vanity plate which reads “Rammer Jammer.”

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to contact investigators at 770-499-3987.
