Chilling surveillance video shows a motorist in New York striking a 12-year-old girl with their car and sending her flying before fleeing the scene.

New York City police are now searching for the driver of the BMW sedan car who hit the youngster as she crossed a street in the Bronx.

The girl was not seriously injured in the Sunday afternoon incident, says NYPD.

Investigators released video showing the girl stepping into the road as the dark-coloured vehicle’s front hood hits her and sends her into the air.
