The hit-and-run driver who killed a teenage girl as she crossed a Sheffield road is still at large.

Police have not yet tracked the mystery motorist down following Friday night’s collision, in which 14-year-old Jasmyn Chan died.

The teenager was crossing Normanton Hill, Intake, with a group of friends when she was struck by the car.

Jasmyn is said to have lost her life while pushing her 12-year-old friend Tia Tucker out of the way of the car as it headed for them.

A growing sea of floral tributes, cards, letters and soft toys marks the spot where tragedy struck.

Youngsters at Birley Community College, which Jasmyn attended, have also placed flowers at a shrine set up in her memory.

Hundreds of comments about the tragedy have been posted on Jasmyn’s own Facebook page.

Lisa Broomhead Tingle has written: “As a parent watching all your heartbroken friends carry flowers into school, I can only hope it gives your family even a little comfort to see how much you were loved.”

Connie Shemeld has paid tribute to the teenager’s bravery.

“Such an amazing girl, you’re a true hero putting your life before another’s. So much respect for you.”
