SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A jaywalking teenager is alive after she was hit by two cars while running across a street on Monday.

According to reports, the 14-year-old was attempting to cross the street despite a red signal for pedestrians.

As the video shows, halfway across, a red truck hits her. The impact threw her into the path of another vehicle which also hit her.

Neither driver stayed at the scene following the incident.

Police have arrested one of the drivers and are still looking for the second.

The teenage girl was treated at a hospital and was released on Tuesday.

    Good grief. First….she should have obeyed the law. She should have known better than to run cross traffic like that!!!…BUT…for those 2 drivers to leave the scene created another…yet even more serious scenario. At least one got out of his vehicle…but apparently left before Police and EMS got there. I Pray that she will be ok and learned a good lesson from this…

    IF I don’t see the cars, they do not exist
    She must have been a deer in a previous life. In this life she is just stupid.
    She should be arrested and forced to pay for the damages to those cars that she hit (NOTE I say she hit not the cars hit her).

    It did’nt really look like the red truck hit her. Maybe touched her heel. The other driver could’nt avoid her. She fell right into his car. Nobody’s fault but the teens but the driver did’nt stay at scene so they gotta arrest him. Hope she got jay walking ticket.
