A teenager was struck by a vehicle while walking to Port Washington High School Wednesday morning, and police are asking for help in finding the motorist who hit her.

    The girl, a freshman special-needs student, told officers she was crossing Grand Avenue at Webster Street between 7:15 and 7:20 a.m. when a vehicle passing on the
right side of the road struck her left leg and ran over her foot, according to police.

    The girl, who was in the crosswalk, described the vehicle as a small silver or white car with a round, blue-and-white sticker on the back.    

    The driver stopped initially, but then left the scene, police said.

    The student did not fall and kept walking to school, reporting the incident once she got to the school office, police said.

    The girl was not seriously injured.

    Other vehicles were waiting for the girl to cross the road when the incident occurred, and police hope these motorists or other pedestrians may have information about
the accident.
