Seattle police are looking for a car which struck a 6-year-old girl at the intersection of South Henderson Street and Seward Park Avenue South this afternoon.

Witnesses say the large, light blue vehicle was traveling south on Seward Park Avenue South when it “veered” into the oncoming lanes and into a girl walking in a crosswalk, said police spokeswoman Reneé Witt.

“The vehicle from the impact launched the girl approximately 20 feet in the air,” said Seattle police spokeswoman Reneé Witt. The impact knocked out several of the girl’s teeth and left her with nonfatal injuries.

Police spokesman Mark Jamieson said the vehicle in the 12:24 p.m. incident could be a Lincoln. Police don’t have the fleeing vehicle’s license plate, but witnesses said the two men in the car appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s, Jamieson said.
