Detectives investigating a hit-and-run which killed a Sheffield teenager are trying to trace a man spotted close to the crash scene that night.

Jasmyn Chan, aged 14, died on Normanton Hill, Intake, after being struck by a car at around 9.20pm on Friday, May 9.

A small dark coloured car was involved in the collision but failed to stop.

Three weeks on after the collision, detectives revealed they are keen to trace a man spotted walking along the Mosborough Parkway - less than a mile away from the crash scene - that night.

He was white and aged in his late teens to early 20s.

Chief Inspector Stuart Walne, leading the investigation, said: “We are very keen to identify and speak to this man as part of our enquiries.

“If you are this man, or you know who it was, please contact the police.

“In recent appeals we have asked for information regarding a Honda Civic. The car is still outstanding however we have a number of leads we are continuing to follow up and further operational activities to conduct to progress the investigation in a bid to locate the car.”

A 32-year-old man arrested on Wednesday, May 14 is on bail pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information should call 101.
