Police: Woman, 31, struck by speeding car in Lawncrest, left in the street

Authorities in Philadelphia are searching for a hit-and-run driver who was captured on video striking a woman and returning to the scene shortly after the collision. 

Police say 31-year-old Brittany Caban was walking to her car on the 5700 block of Rising Sun Avenue just before midnight Monday to get training pads for her new puppy when she was hit. 

Video surveillance footage obtained by FOX 29's Kelly Rule shows Caban cross the street when a speeding vehicle strikes her and send the training pads scattered across the street. 

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said officers found Caban suffering from trauma to the face and a broken arm. She was brought to Einstein Medical Center where she is expected to survive. 

Police say surveillance video show the unknown driver return to the scene of the crash moments later and drive right past Caban before heading in the wrong direction down a one-way street. 

"I'm at a loss for words with something like that," Captain Mark Overwise said. "As a city we need to band together, we can't tolerate this type of behavior on our streets." 

Investigators believe that speed was a factor and the striking vehicle, believed to be a dark-colored newer model sports car, should have front end damage. 

Police say the woman was crossing the street to get dog training pads when she was struck by a speeding vehicle. The pads could be seen spread out in the street after the woman was struck. 

"It really breaks your heart," Doret Ross, a neighbor, said. "It could happen to anybody, it could happen to me, it could happen to anybody."

Authorities urge anyone with information on the vehicle or the crash to contact the Philadelphia Police Department immediately.
