Kamari Smith, the 8-year-old victim of a Detroit hit and run, has died

(WXYZ) - Kamari Smith, the young girl who was injured in a hit and run in Detroit on May 19, has died, according to sources.

The 8-year-old girl was getting ice cream with a group of kids when the driver of a Dodge Charger struck her. 

“When I came outside, I saw her on the ground," said 10-year-old Tajah, a friend of Kamari, "And I really didn’t know what to do. I couldn't do anything but cry because she's my best friend. And it was just real sad."

“I heard a loud thump." said neighbor Ronald Cummings, "And as I came out the door, I just saw that Charger speeding away, and the little girl was laying in the street.”

“And it’s just really, really sad to see somebody hit a little girl and keep going like that.” said neighbor Rosie Edwards, whose children play with Kamari.

Cortney Shields and Leonard Crosby were arraigned on Saturday in connection with the crash.
