The woman accused of causing a crash that killed a 9-year-old Euclid girl in November pleaded guilty Thursday.

Lacynthia Tidmore, 23, pleaded guilty to failing to stop after a crash and aggravated vehicular homicide.

Tidmore contacted police and made arrangements to turn herself in shortly after the hit-skip, which happened on Babbitt Road at East 237th Street on Nov. 9, 2017.

The girl, De'Zyre Mays, died Nov. 21, 2017.

The impact was so hard that police found parts of the vehicle in the roadway. 

Basheera Perry, who lives in the area, said the girl was running to catch her school bus.

Tidmore will be sentenced on May 24.
