After hitting the girl, Litmanovich got out of her car to check on her, but then fled when a witness called 911, according to police. 

The girl was taken to an area hospital with bruising on her torso and legs.

Litmanovich was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless endangerment, assault, reckless driving, failing to yield to a pedestrian, failure to exercise due care and speeding.
