Family: Bowen student fatally hit by up to 3 vehicles

More details on that hit-and-run on that 15 year old girl:
Chicago police said Raymond was struck by a driver who was driving under the influence of alcohol. She then was thrown into the path of a second vehicle and hit again, police believe. Detectives are following up on whether a third car was involved.

Raymond had just stepped onto East 87th Street near King Drive about 11:15 p.m. Saturday when the collision occurred, authorities said. She died Monday morning at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn. The Cook County medical examiner's office ruled her death an accident after an autopsy on Tuesday found she died of multiple injuries.

The driver of the first vehicle to strike Raymond was ticketed for striking a pedestrian and a plate registration violation, in addition to DUI, police said, adding that the crash remains under investigation. The second driver wasn't ticketed.

Family members said Raymond was on the phone seconds before the collision and was being harassed by at least one man on the street, but police said that could not be confirmed.

The family is imploring anyone with information on the crash to come forward.
Just terrible!
