- An 83-year-old woman is dead after a hit-and-run accident on Detroit's east side Sunday.

Charlotte Kish was known around the neighborhood for taking care of the flower beds in the median of East Outer Drive between Mound Road and Ryan Road.

That's exactly what she was doing when she was stuck Sunday night. Kish later died from her injuries, her son told FOX 2.

According to police, Kish was in the median, when a silver Buick lost control setting off a chain reaction at approximately 7 p.m. Sunday.

The Buick rear-ended a black Chrysler 300, which then hit a pick-up truck. Kish was struck by the pick-up truck.

Police say the driver of the silver Buick, who was at fault, left the scene of the accident. 

Kish was transported to the hospital, where she died from her injuries at approximately 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Police are still looking for the driver of the silver Buick. If you may have witness the accident, or have any information, contact the Detroit police.
