Police searching for driver that knocked into teen

April 7, 2019

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department is looking for a woman who they say left the scene of a collision that sent a teenage pedestrian hurtling into the street.

Authorities say the woman was driving a black Dodge Challenger with Georgia license plates on 47th Street in Brooklyn the afternoon of March 27 and struck a 14-year-old girl in the crosswalk at the intersection of Ninth Avenue.

Video of the collision shows the girl getting lifted off the ground and pushed practically into oncoming traffic.

Authorities say the woman initially got out, but left when onlookers called 911.

The teen was taken to the hospital with bruising to her chest and legs.
