"It was pretty dramatic because i've never experienced anything like this before," Hamilton said.
She said it's not uncommon to see kids outside, especially since it's warming up. They all go to the playground, where witnesses say they had seen the toddler playing just minutes before the hit and run took place.
"I just pray that will turn themselves in because I don't know hwree they could be right now and not know what is going on," Hamilton said.
"You really feel for the family, the child, and the witnesses that had to see it," Officer Richard Harper said.
All witnesses could tell police is that the driver came through in a red SUV or truck. Harper believes the driver is battling with his or her actions.
"They're probably afraid. They're conscience is probably eating them up. They're probably talking to people about it," Harper said.
Detectives could also get with complex managers who have the resident's vehicle information. Of course that only leads to a suspect if the driver lives here."
"There are people who drive suvs and stuff like that feel they can drive over humps," Hamilton said.
Hamilton hopes the crash will remind people to drive carefully through the complex, especially when children are at play.
