THURSTON COUNTY, Wash. -- Thurston County detectives are looking for the driver who flew through an intersection and struck a high school student in a crosswalk, then left the scene.

According to the sheriff's office, it happened Sept. 30 at Pacific Avenue SE and Steilacoom Road SE.

Video released by the sheriff's office shows the moment when the student was hit. The driver kept on going and didn't stop to see if she was OK.
