Police in New York have released dramatic CCTV footage of a driver mowing down a group of teenagers in a hit-and-run incident.

The incident was filmed at about 3am last Thursday morning in Buffalo in upstate New York.

The video shows the three teenagers trying to run out of the car's path as it veers towards them, driving onto the footpath.

It hits one of the boys head on and sends him hurtling over the windshield and out of camera shot.

He has been identified as 18-year-old Victor Jerez, who is being treated for serious injuries at a Buffalo hospital.

The other two teens escaped uninjured.
