Baltimore County police say an 11-year-old girl was in serious condition Friday after being struck by a driver in the Towson area.

The driver left the area after striking the child, police said. They are asking for the public’s help in locating the car involved in the crash — a burgundy four-door sedan.

Police said the 11-year-old girl was crossing in the legal crossing portion of Chestnut Oak Road just before 4 p.m. when she was struck by a southbound car. The car had turned onto Chestnut from the westbound lane of Yakona Road, police said.
