"I don't remember anything else. When I got hit I don't remember the ambulance or anything. That's a scary place to be," the victim said.

Close friends say the girl is recovering from a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, a dislocated shoulder and torn ligaments in her left knee.

The girl says her friend who was hit suffered several broken ribs.

"He should have at least stopped and helped us," the victim said.
