PORT JEFFERSON STATION, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) -- The family of a Long Island teenager who was killed in a hit-and-run over the weekend is pleading for help.
Jenna Perez would have turned 18 next week, but now her family is planning her funeral.
She was killed Saturday night when a driver struck her while she was crossing Nesconset Highway near Terryville Road in Port Jefferson Station.
Jose Ortiz, the victim's uncle, had a message for the driver Tuesday night.
"Turn yourself in, you know? Take accountability for what you did to this little girl. She had a whole life ahead of her, and you took that away," he said.
