Two teenage girls have been conveyed to hospital following a hit run collision at Doncaster this afternoon, Victoria Police say.

The incident happened when the two girls, who were arriving at a local shopping centre, attempted to cross Doncaster Road near Williamson Road just before 1pm.

As the girls ran across the road a car, believed to be a silver four wheel drive, struck both the girls knocking them to the ground in the left lane.

The driver of the car failed to stop and continued driving east on Doncaster Road.

The victims, a 13-year-old Donvale girl and a 14-year- old Doncaster East girl, were conveyed to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
