Rockford Police investigate a hit and run on the city’s southeast side.

The victim is a two year-old girl.  It happened around 4pm Tuesday on 18th Street near Harrison.  Police say a black car hit the girl and kept going.  She’s now recovering in the hospital.  A neighbor tells Eyewitness news that drivers speed down her street all the time.

“All they do is speed up and down this road,” said Desiree Bradford.  “They need to do something.  [Put up] some speed signs or road bump.  It’s getting really ridiculous.”

Investigators tell us the girl will be ok.  Police have no suspects.
