    More than a year after a deadly hit-and-run, the family of the 4-year-old who was killed is asking for the community's helping to find the driver. 

    Lun Thang was walking to preschool with her aunt, sister and cousin when a car slammed into her in the crosswalk. 

    Channel 2 Action News first reported on the crash in October 2017.

    As each day and month passes without answers, the pain for her father gets harder.

    "She liked to go to school. She liked singing and she liked to dance," Zam Tuang said about his daughter.

    Tuang reached out to Channel 2’s Lauren Pozen in hopes of reigniting his daughter’s case. Pozen met with Tuang, his translator and attorney on Wednesday. 

    Investigators are still aggressively searching for a dark colored Toyota or Honda, but so far there have been no new leads. 

    It has left the family questioning why the driver has not come forward. 

    "We are just simply wondering. It is not only me. My whole community members are also wondering what’s happened,” Tuang said. 

    He told Pozen his wife has been in a severe depression since losing their daughter. Neither of them has been able to sleep or eat well. 

    It has also been hard for their 7-year-old who witnessed her sister's death and still attends the elementary school. 

    "For the kids, they are scared to go to school," Tuang said.

    The family’s attorney is putting up a $2,500 reward for the identity and arrest of the driver. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at www.StopCrimeATL.com.
