The girl is very poorly in hospital…it’s shocking to think someone could leave a child seriously hurt in the street, drive off and make no effort to get her medical treatment.
Clearly this is distressing at any time for the girl’s family but to happen just days before Christmas is truly heart-breaking.
If anyone saw what happened, was driving in the area at the time, or has any suspicions over who may have been involved, then please call me.

An 11-year-old boy has been treated for a head injury and taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital following a collision with a car this afternoon.
The boy, who was unconscious when crews arrived, also suffered an abdominal injury in the incident which took place on Grosvenor Road in Gornal Wood, shortly before 1.25pm.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a rapid response vehicle to the scene.
An off duty paramedic who came across the incident was also in attendance whilst a BASICS doctor met the ambulance en-route to the hospital.
The boy was already receiving care from an off duty paramedic when crews arrived at the scene.
The boy was then treated at the scene for his head and abdomen injuries as well as a reduced level of consciousness.
He was fully immobilised and moved on to the ambulance to begin his journey to hospital.
The off duty paramedic travelled in the back of the ambulance to assist the crew with giving treatment en-route.
Prior to their departure from the scene, crews had liaised with a BASICS doctor who they met en-route, so he could continue giving treatment for the remainder of the journey.
Whilst the injuries suffered by the boy are serious, thankfully they are not thought to be life threatening.
The driver of the car was uninjured in the incident.
