CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Police are searching for a driver who hit a preschool student on way to the bus.

Kaliyah Miller, 4, returned from the hospital with a bandage on her foot and bruised knee.

Her aunt, Shanta Page, said Kaliyah was crossing the street on Thornton Road in West Charlotte to get to the bus when a man in a burgundy Nissan made a quick left, driving right past the bus' stop arm, and into the little girl.

"As she fell, her leg was up under the tire," Paige said "And he had to back up in order to get her leg from underneath the tire."

Police said the driver stopped, and checked on the severity of the girl's injuries but left before officers arrived.
