MILWAUKEE (CBS58) -- A life cut short. Seven-year-old Londyn Quesada was killed in a hit and run crash Wednesday night, Oct 28. It happened near 76th and Calumet Road. Milwaukee police are looking for a suspect.

"Y'all took my 7-year-old niece," Jamie Johnson said. She is Londyn's great aunt. "My soul gone, our family hurt."

Milwaukee police say Londyn was riding in the car with her mom when a car driving recklessly slammed into them.

Officials say Londyn's mom suffered serious injuries. Londyn was ejected from the car and died at the scene.

"They tried CPR but she didn't make it," Johnson said.

"They still out there, they took their people out that car and pulled off," said Johnson. 

Johnson says they are now left with pain that may never heal.

"That's our baby, smart, love church, active," she said. 

Londyn leaves behind her little sister.

"She got a 1-year-old sister that's going to come looking for her and she's gone," said Johnson.
