Raw Video: Pedestrian hit-and-run caught on camera

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Virginia Beach Police have released surveillance video showing a car striking a 16-year-old girl earlier this month.

Tonya Pierce with Beach Police said an emergency call came in at 7:18 a.m. on Friday, February 10 reporting the incident at the intersection of Dahlia Drive and Independence Boulevard, near Green Run High School.

A silver Nissan sedan driven by a woman was stopped at a red light in the southbound lane of South Independence when it made a right turn -- and into the teen as she was crossing the street.

The teenager was knocked to the ground, but able to get up moments later.  She exchanged words with the driver, who then drove off without rending any aid or assistance, Pierce said.

The teen was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
