A 14-year-old girl was seriously injured by a hit-and-run driver, thrown in the air and then hit by two other vehicles that stopped in Levittown on Thursday afternoon, Nassau County police said.

The victim was crossing Hempstead Turnpike at the corner of Shelter Lane when she was struck by eastbound brown or tan four-door vehicle that fled the scene without stopping shortly before 4 p.m., police said.

After she landed, two other vehicles also hit her, but the drivers of those vehicles did not flee like the first one, police said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of trauma.

Second Squad detectives request anyone with information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
