New video shows the terrifying moment a driver in the Bronx struck a 12-year-old girl in the street, sending her flying into the air — and then driving away without even pausing to check on her, according to police.

The incident, which was captured on camera, happened just before 4:30 p.m. on Sunday on Boone Avenue near East 174th Street in the East Morrisania neighborhood, police said.

The girl was crossing the street between cars when the dark BMW sedan hit her.

The girl suffered cuts and bruises all over her body, and was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where her condition was described by police as stable. She is expected to recover, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to the incident, or who recognizes the vehicle, is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
