5-31 Great Britain - We American's have way more than our share of horrific hit and run crashes, but this one out of Great Britain raised a few eyebrows. An 8 year old girl in Aylesbury, Bucks, was struck by a hit and run driver and thrown into the middle of the street. Not only did the hit and run driver flee, but the 8 year old was forced to crawl thru traffic, which did not stop for her, because both her legs were broken.
