A Phoenix eighth grader was heading to a chiropractor appointment Tuesday night.

She suffered a back injury, along with leg and head wounds in a hit-and-run crash on Thursday afternoon.

Kareeni Beckwith was riding her bike home from school, south of Grand Canyon University in west Phoenix when she was hit by a car.

Surveillance videos from neighbors' homes show the driver speeding off, in a late 90s black Honda Accord, with a white bumper.

The video also shows people running out of their homes to help the girl, who was unconscious on the street.

"It's mortifying. No parent should have to go through this," Karonica Bestone, Kareeni's mother said.

"I don't see how anyone could do that. To leave a child unconscious in the middle of the road is something I'll never understand," she added.

The family is sharing the video, hoping someone will recognize the unique car.

Sleuths on social media, specifically the AZ Street Heat Facebook group, are helping the family try to identify the car and driver.

While police responded to the scene on Thursday, the Phoenix Police Department did not respond to a request for information on the incident.
