Officers believe that the driver may have been going at nearly double the speed limit when he hit the girls.

The vehicle reportedly left no skid marks, which suggests that the driver did not even attempt to brake.

The driver did not stop at the scene and police are now seeking help to find the driver of the vehicle.

Police think the car was stolen and- following accounts from witnesses- are looking for two males who they believe were in the car.
