Mourners marched on Dec. 1 at a vigil to honor the high-school student who died recently in a hit-and-run crash in Kensington.

Carrying pictures of the late Mohammed Uddin, the group of more than 100 met at E. Seventh Street and Caton Avenue, where on Nov. 20 the driver of a maroon Chevrolet Impala slammed into Uddin in the crosswalk and sped off, leaving him to die, according to police. Uddin was 14.

Witnesses on the scene took down the 78-year-old female motorist’s license plate number, and officers found her damaged vehicle nearby that evening, then arrested her for leaving the scene of an accident, cops said. The suspect remains locked up with bail set at $50,000.
