Philadelphia police have released surveillance video of a hit-and-run that sent a young girl to the hospital.

Last Tuesday, Aijahanae Johnson, 9, was riding her bike near her home.

As she tried to cross the street, she was struck by a car which quickly left the scene.

A witness drove after the hit-and-run vehicle but was unable to stop it.

Johnson suffered non-life threatening injuries to her body and forehead.

She continues to recover.

Police say the hit-and-run vehicle was a dark-blue Cadillac with the letters “HTL” on a Pennsylvania license plate.

The driver appeared to be a woman in her 20s wearing a purple scarf, according to investigators.
