SAN JOSE — Authorities are searching for a motorist who hit a 12-year-old girl in a crosswalk and drove off.

Captured on surveillance camera, the collision occurred about 8:45 a.m. Monday at North 17th and East Julian streets, said Sgt. Enrique Garcia of the San Jose Police Department.

The footage shows a brown late 1990s to early 2000s Toyota Camry turning from southbound 17th onto eastbound Julian and hitting the girl as she walks north across Julian in a crosswalk. The impact knocks the girl to the ground. The Toyota stops but drives off seconds later.

The girl was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Garcia.

The driver of the Toyota was described by police as a 40- to 50-year-old white woman with brown hair.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run can leave a tip with Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-STOP (7867) or Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward.
