CCTV Footage Released After Birmingham Hit And Run

Police have released 'shocking' CCTV footage of the moment a school girl was kncoked down in a hit and run in Birmingham.

The 12-year-old girl was hit while on her way to school on a Zebra Crossing on Vicarage Road in Kings Heath at 730am on Friday 21 November.

Footage captured by a bus, which had stopped at the crossing, shows an unknown red car overtaking the bus and colliding with the young girl as she crosses. The car then drives away, leaving the child with a broken ankle.

PC Laura Loy from the Road Traffic Investigation Unit said: "Despite the collision being captured by the camera, we have been unable to identify what the unknown car is. The collision took place at a busy time in the morning and there were lots of people around who may have seen what happened or be able to tell us what the car is."

PC Loy added: "The driver of the vehicle may have told someone about this incident, so I am appealing to the driver or anyone who may have been told about the collision to come forward.

"The young girl suffered a serious injury to her leg and is still recovering; anyone with information should call 101."
