PUYALLUP, Wash. -- A teen girl is suffering serious injuries after being struck in a hit-and-run accident in Puyallup.

Puyallup police say the girl, 16, was crossing in the crosswalk in the 600 block of West Stewart Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Thursday night when she was struck.

Video surveillance from the Golden Rule Grocery where the girl was inside before the collision shows a white color large sport utility vehicle, possibly similar to a Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe, fleeing the scene eastbound on West Stewart Avenue.

The vehicle likely has damage to the right front of the vehicle as well as a possible dent on the hood of the vehicle.

The girl was transported to St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma where she is expected to survive.

Puyallup police are asking that anyone with information about the collision or vehicle involved call the Puyallup Police Department Tip Line at 253-770-3343.
