MILWAUKEE -- FOX6 News confirmed with the Milwaukee County medical examiner Tuesday, Oct. 29 that a 4-year-old girl badly hurt in a hit-and-run crash near 22nd Street and Center Street on Thursday, Oct. 24 died from her injuries. The girl's 6-year-old sister, Alisa, died from her injuries at the scene. Their cousin, Drevyze Rayford, 10, was hurt in the crash.

On Friday, police confirmed a vehicle was recovered, and several persons of interest were in custody.

Destiny Foster, the girls' mother, spoke out for the first time at a vigil Sunday -- overwhelmed with emotion, grateful for the community's support, devastated for her daughters, and angry with the driver responsible for this.

"I just can't believe I am standing here," said Foster. "I have to explain not just to one child, but to two kids where they sister at."

The children were walking home Thursday evening when a driver ran a red light at 22nd and Center and struck all three children before driving away. The medical examiner's report revealed there was at least one adult with the group.

"What was you all doing?" said Foster. "Did you all not see these kids"

Alisa Gee died from her injuries at the scene. Amea and Drevyze suffered life-threatening injuries.

"You hit three kids and killed," said Foster.

On Sunday afternoon, family and friends returned to the scene -- their heads hung in sadness.

"She was just 6 years old," said Yavonda Sweet, friend of the family. "She didn't get to live her life. The hurt is never gonna be over with. It's never gonna be over."

They held hands in prayer and shared words of comfort with a mother struggling to find her own.
