NEW YORK (AP) -- The NYPD is looking for a woman who authorities say left the scene of a collision that injured a girl, who was sent hurtling into the street.

Authorities say the woman was driving a black Dodge Challenger with Georgia license plates on 47th Street in Brooklyn in the afternoon of March 27th and struck a 14-year-old girl in the crosswalk at the intersection of 9th Avenue.

Video of the incident 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.
