Police in Georgia have made an arrest in a jaw-dropping hit and run crash captured on video.

The Dekalb County Sheriff’s office has arrested 28-year-old Gabriel Jabri Fordham of Lithonia.

He faces a long list of charges including reckless driving, hit-and-run, and serious injury by vehicle.

Authorities say Fordham was behind the wheel when a car jumped the curb and slammed into a home where 9-year-old Laderihanna Holmes was playing with a friend.

When police got to the scene, they found the car still inside the home – tire marks and a trail of debris leading into the front yard.

Miraculously the girls were not killed.

Laderihanna was taken to the hospital for a fractured skull and broken pelvis.

The 11-year-old friend sustained a foot injury.
