‘It’s so hard,’ DeKalb mom says after driver kills 4-year-old, flees

San Niang’s 4-year-old daughter is dead and she doesn’t know who to blame.

“It's so terrible, you know. It's so hard for our family. My heart is so broken. It is terrible,” the mother told Channel 2 Action News.

The child, Lun Thang, was struck by a driver while walking to Indian Creek Elementary on Oct. 18. The driver fled and still hasn’t been found.

The family has hired an attorney, Evan Kaine, to help get tips on the person responsible. He set up a hotline.

“Somebody’s got to help this family,” Kaine told the news station. “It's an extremely time-sensitive matter. If too much time goes by, this person is going to move. The car will disappear.”

Police have said they’re looking for a 2000 or 2001 charcoal gray, 4-door Toyota Camry. It was identified by paint chips at the scene.

Anyone with information can call the hotline established through the attorney, who is offering a $2,500 reward: 833-448-2637. Or contact police.
