"Accidents happen but you don't just leave and have no disregard for human life," said the victim's son, Stanley Kee.
Police are searching for a silver sedan, possibly a Chrysler, last seen traveling north on the 6300 block of Crescentville Road.
"The victim was struck with such force that the vehicle that struck her suffered significant front-end damage," said Philadelphia Police Inspector D.F. Pace.
The family wants the driver who hit Kee to come forward. They also want something to be done to prevent this from happening to other people crossing the bus stop.
"We're all family and we came together because we love each other. And we have to stick together, not only for her but for pedestrians in this area," said the victim's cousin, Tonia Hargust.
Family members and neighbors say cars speed by all the time. They are hoping the installation of speed bumps could help with the problem.
Hargust said the bus stop should also have a crosswalk or a sidewalk added because it just isn't safe for people to use.
Anyone with any information on the driver is asked to contact police at 215-686-TIPS.
