Knox student killed in hit-and-run

GALESBURG (AP) – Knox College officials say a student is dead after a hit and run accident.

The (Galesburg) Register-Mail reports that a campus bulletin was released Sunday informing students of the death of Tundun Lawani. College officials say she was struck by a car as she crossed a street.

Police say the incident happened around 3:30 a.m. and Lawani was transported to Galesburg Cottage Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Authorities say a 33-year-old Galesburg woman has been charged in connection with the death. Lakeesha Smith was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a fatality and no valid insurance. Smith is due in court on Monday.
