An eight-year-old girl is lucky to be alive after she was hit by a getaway car being chased by police.

Pig-tailed Cassidy Wall was thrown into the air and came crashing down on her head as she was hit by the car as she played on her scooter outside her US home.

Shocking footage as she tried to runaway from the speeding car was captured by a nearby security camera shows Cassidy trying to run away as the car spun and smacked into her — launching her several feet in the air.

As two men tried to escape from a Philadelphia police patrol car they careered onto the pavement outside Cassidy’s home in the city’s the Erie area.

As she happily played the screeching car vaulted onto the pavement as she desperately tries to escape – but it hit her side-on and threw her several feet in the air before she crashed back down to the ground in front of the car’s spinning wheels before it rammed into a fence.

Her five-year-old sister Zmyiah, watched the horror from the family’s front porch.

“The car crashed and then she got hit,” she said afterwards.

Seconds later, the girls’ father scooped her up in his arms as his injured daughter tried to crawl away from the wreck.

Delorean Wall said:“I was terrified. As a father , you don’t want that to happen to your children. It’s crazy.”

Cassidy was raced to hospital by emergency services, but escaped with only a slight concussion .

A few hours later she back playing on the street and said: “I fell and flew in the air, and I landed on my head.”

Chasing police immediately handcuffed the two men in the car.

The driver Angelo Moore, 18, was then arrested for attempting to elude police, aggravated assault by vehicle and possession of marijuana .

His passenger, Brandon Carlson, was also arrested on drugs and weapons charges.
