DeKalb police are searching for the driver of a Honda Accord that was involved in a fatal hit and run last Friday night on Clairmont Road near the Jett Lounge.
Nikki Ogunjemilusi was struck by a car late on the evening of March 8 at the intersection of Clairmont Road and Bragg Street. She was pronounced dead after being transported to Grady Hospital.
A police report of the incident said that, based on eyewitness accounts and evidence found on the scene, Ogunjemilusi was crossing Clairmont when the traffic signal changed from green to yellow. The driver of the Honda then sped up in an attempt to make the light and struck Ogunjemilusi.
The vehicle then continued north on Clairmont, making no attempt to stop.
Fox 5 Atlanta is reporting that a friend, Dolly Ogunsakin, was with Ogunjemilusi at the time of the incident.
"Honestly, I didn't even see [the car]," said Ogunsakin. "One of the people around said it was a sedan."
Ogunjemilusi's funeral will be held this Saturday, March 16.
