    A mother is pleading for help to find the driver responsible for injuring her family and leaving her daughter unable to walk after a violent hit-and-run crash in Prince George's County. News4's Tracee Wilkins reports. (Published Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017)

    A Prince George’s County, Maryland, family is asking for help in identifying the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash in November that injured three people.

    Diamond Frazier, 17, and her family were heading north on Route 301 in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, when their car was rear-ended, spinning out of control. Frazier was thrown out of the car through the rear window, landing on the opposite side of the highway.

    Police said the driver of the car ran away from the scene, leaving behind the vehicle. According to the family's attorney, the owner of the vehicle is not cooperating with the investigation, and police still have not identified who was driving the car.

    Although all three family members were injured in the collision, Frazier was hurt the most seriously. Since the crash, she’s had countless surgeries and is still unable to walk.

    Frazier said she has been on bed rest and missed most of her senior year at Wise High School. The family said Maryland State Police are close to making an arrest but need witnesses to come forward.

    The detective on the case would like people to contact them if they have any information at 301-568-8101, the number for the Forrestville Barrack of the Maryland state Police.
