KEIZER, OR (KPTV) -

A 10-year-old girl riding her bike was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Keizer on Tuesday.

The girl's mother, Angie Gwyn, told FOX 12 her daughter was trying to cross the street in the 500 block of Cummings Lane North when a driver crashed into her around 9:30 a.m.

The car hit the girl's rear tire, causing her to be thrown to the ground as she was in the crosswalk.

"I fell off the bike and I got up and she barely stopped, but she asked if I was okay," said Tiffani Gwyn. "I said 'yeah,' and she just kept on going.

Keizer police said the driver was heading south on River Road North when she hit the girl. The only damage to the bike was a broken pedal, but the girl suffered a broken toe and scrapes to her knees and hip.

"I am pretty mad," said Angie Gwyn. "For several reasons, not just because my daughter got hurt. But because she left her there. I wish she would have attempted to contact me or let Tiffani contact me."

The driver is described as a white woman and about 59 years old with chin-length, curly brown hair. She wore a black jacket.

Her car was a gray Ford four-door.

No witnesses have come forward so far.

Anyone with information on who may be responsible is asked to call 503-856-3479.
