Woman killed, 2 year-old injured in hit-and-run

Amarillo, TX - A woman is dead and her 2 year-old girl suffered critical injuries in an early morning hit-and-run accident.

At around 2:23 this morning, Randall County Sheriffs Deputies responded to a call of a woman lying on the service road of I-27, south of McCormick Road.

Randall County spokesman Danny Alexander said the caller also saw a child who appeared to be injured.  The woman had been walking with the toddler after they left a home in the Amberwood neighborhood.

A 20 year-old unidentified Randall County man returned to the scene after driving home and telling his parents he had hit something.

Authorities retrieved the vehicle from the man's home, and it is being  processed.  Officials will not release the names of the woman or child until the family has been notified.  No arrests have been made.
