LITHONIA, Ga. (CNN Newsource) — Police in Georgia are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck a 9-year-old girl playing in her front lawn.

The family released surveillance video of the incident in hopes it will help catch the driver. 

On Friday, Laderihanna Holmes was playing in her yard with another girl when a black Sedan jumped the curb and slammed into her and the family’s home.

Surveillance video shows several people rushing outside to help. It also shows someone slip out the passenger-side door of the car and run away.

Laderihanna survived, but her family says she has critical injuries. The other girl playing with her was not injured.
