A  Killeen mother is searching for the person who hit her daughter with their vehicle Wednesday night and then drove off.

"That's what is so alarming and makes me angry, I wouldn't have done that to anyone else's child at all, to anybody, period. You don't know what you did, you don't know the effects you don't know," Pamela Jackson said. "Please let yourself be known, contact the authorities and at least try to make a point to see if my daughter is OK, right your wrong."

Justice Jackson is 12 years old and said she was trying to cross the intersection of Stan Schlueter Loop and Bunny Trail with her brother when the hit-and-run happened.

"We were going to CVS and the crossing thing said to go, it saw me and stopped for me for a minute and then it just pressed the pedal and hit me and I landed on the hood," Justice said.

Justice added that she was hoping the person would stop to ask her if she was OK, but that didn't happen.

"They just zoomed toward the dollar tree and left," Justice said.

The accident left the 12-year-old very sore and unable to go to school or track practice.

"My leg is sore, like my thigh and my arm hurts and throbs because I hit my hand on the hood," Justice said.

The Killeen Police Department said they are investigating the incident. Officers are looking for a silver SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police.
