The teen was hit by a pass­ing sil­ver or grey BMW sa­loon at around 4.30pm on Fri­day (Septem­ber 30).

She had got off a school bus and was cross­ing Ban­gors Road North when the car, head­ing towards Iver, hit her.

The driver, de­scribed as a white woman in her 70s, stopped and spoke to the girl be­fore con­tin­u­ing on her jour­ney.

The girl was later taken by am­bu­lance to Wex­ham Park Hospi­tal and needed surgery on her right an­kle, which was frac­tured.
