A Needham, Massachusetts teen is speaking out the day after a car slammed into her and then took off.

Police are now on the search for the driver involved.

Kailey Wasserman, 17, took the SATs Saturday and headed out for an afternoon run to de-stress. She says she was crossing the intersection at High Rock Street and Marked Tree Road when a car went through a stop sign and hit her.

She opened up to NECN about that moment.

"A white car blew through a stop sign and slowed down in the intersection when they saw me and then sped right back up and hit me," said Wasserman. "I rolled off the hood of their car and I hit the pavement really hard. I hit my face against the pavement, which is what knocked my teeth out. By the time I got back up, the car was already speeding down Marked Tree, heading towards High Rock."

Wasserman wants the driver to come forward. The teen lost two teeth, got some scrapes on her face, and bruises all over her body.

It is especially frustrating because prom is this week, but Wasserman says she still plans on going.

Needham Police are looking for a white, newer-model Toyota Camry that may have Rhode Island license plates.

Anyone with information is asked to call (781) 444-1212.
