The City of Armagh High School has expressed its best wishes to a past pupil as she battles for life in hospital tonight.
The school, via Facebook, says: “Out thoughts and prayers are with past pupil Lesley-Ann McCarragher and her family at this difficult time.”
The teenage girl remains critical as police appealed for the driver of a white coloured Saab car or witnesses to come forward.
Hundreds have taken to social media to express their shock and horror at the hit and run incident on the Monaghan Road just outside Armagh at 12.25pm today.
Lesley-Ann had attended the City of Armagh High as well as the Royal School Armagh.
It is being reported the teenager had been jogging on the hard shoulder when struck by a vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
She was taken to hospital in Belfast and remains critical.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Lesley-Ann tonight.
