Police investigating the death of 14-year-old Jasmyn Chan are trying to trace a car in connection with the hit and run in which she died.

The appeal comes after a 32-year-old man was arrested overnight in Sheffield on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Police said they are keen to find a green-blue coloured Honda Civic car, with the registration number P135 FEO, in connection with the investigation into the fatal crash on Normanton Hill, Intake.

The arrested man was still in custody this evening assisting police with enquiries.

Jasmyn died as she crossed Normanton Hill on Friday night.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “A 32-year-old Sheffield man has been arrested in connection with the death of 14-year-old Jasmyn Chan.

“The man, who was arrested overnight on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, remains in police custody today.

Jasmyn, a pupil at Birley Community College, suffered fatal injuries in the collision.

Yesterday her parents Peter Chan and Paula McCullie made an emotional appeal for the driver to hand themselves in.

Anyone who may have information regarding the location of the car is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting incident number 1098 of 9 May, 2014.
