A hit and run driver was caught on video backing into an 86-year old woman and driving off—even after getting out to check out on her.

On Wednesday, April 22, just after 1:30 p.m. an 86-year old woman was leaving the McDonald's on the 16000 block of Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach with her husband and daughter when she was struck by a car in the parking lot. As seen in the video posted by the Huntington Beach Police Department on Facebook, car pulls into the parking lot, stops and then backs into the woman.

The female passenger gets out of the car and tends to the woman on the ground, and the driver gets out shortly thereafter but appears to gesture to his passenger to get back into the car. They then drive off and according to the police sped off northbound on Beach Boulevard.

According to comments by the HBPD's Facebook account, the woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and has since been released from the hospital.
