COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The 14-year-old girl who was the victim of a hit-and-run on Sunday night has died. 

Arie Phillips died at 7:16 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the Muscogee County Coroner. Her body will not be sent for an autopsy. 

Phillips had been in a coma since Sunday night when she was hit by an unidentified person in a red truck on Milgen Road. 

"Whoever you are can you please just come, we forgive you but we want justice brought for our family," says Phillips' aunt. 

The high school freshman was in Columbus visiting family for spring break and was walking to the store with her brother around 9 p.m. 

Her father says then a crimson red truck with tinted windows hit her from behind knocking her body more than 20 yards away. 

If you know anything about the dark red or crimson medium sized pickup truck with damage to the front, right-side you are urged to call the Columbus Police Department at 706-225-4040.
