A Cibola high school teen is fighting for her life after she was the victim of a hit-and-run early Saturday morning.
Just before 5 a.m., 14-year-old Mary Rodriguez and her friend were skateboarding in Yuma, her aunt Sandra Magana tells News 11.
"She had woke up to go to her morning stroll; this is what she does every morning," Magana said.
Mary was on her skateboard traveling southbound on Avenue B in the crosswalk, on the west side of the intersection, according to police.
The driver was traveling eastbound on 24th St. and struck Mary. The driver continued eastbound on 24th St.
Mary's friend tells the family the girls had the right of way.
She was initially taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center with critical injuries but was later flown to the Children's Hospital in Phoenix.
"she's on life support--breathing life support," Magana said.
Mary is unresponsive, has a broken collarbone and has swelling in her brain, Magana said.
"We're trusting God that she comes through, and hopefully that there's healing, and fighting for her life."
Meanwhile, police need your help finding the driver in this hit-and-run.
The car is described as as a light-colored, possibly brown, four-door Nissan Altima, possibly between a 2002 and 2006 model year.
The car should have noticeable damage to the left front corner.
While other students return to class Monday, Mary will be fighting for her life. Her family wants the driver to turn him or herself in.
"We need to end this ordeal, and even if it was an accident, to come forward," Magana said.
If you have any information on this hit-and-run, you are urged to call the Yuma Police Department at (928) 373-4700 or 78-CRIME to remain anonymous.
News 11 will bring updates as they become available.
