Memorial fund set up to help hit-and-run victim's family

Jefferson, La. - A memorial fund has been set up to help the family of a child who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Jefferson.

The collision happened Tuesday night near the intersection of Jefferson Highway and Newman Avenue. State troopers say Steshondia Stackhouse hit five-year-old Jason Bauer and failed to stop at the scene.  They also say witnesses help them find her.
