A woman clipped four youths with her minivan following an altercation outside a junior high school in Las Vegas on Friday.
The incident occurred in a parking lot that is used as a pickup location for Silvestri Junior High School, according to the local Fox affiliate.
A student told the station that "a mom in a white van got into a physical fight with a student and then she was hellbent on running him down."
"You can see her right here gun it toward the students, the back door of that van wide open," the station reported. "The van speeds through the dirt as kids frantically dart out of the way. Kids described her as doing donuts in that dirt lot. Again, no one seriously hurt, though some kids were clipped by the van. You can see there were plenty of close calls there."
A student recalled that when he came out of school, he saw a large group of people surrounding a mother and "someone's kid."
"The mom was just like yelling at the kid, cursing at him. She ended up actually hitting him," the student said. "That's when my friend hit her back and then she got into the car and she backed up and she hit two or three cars while she was there and she chased my friend around that vacant lot and hit other kids, too."
The woman sped off before police arrived.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, police were still attempting to identify and locate her on Friday evening.
"Ron and Sherry Lawrence said their 14-year-old granddaughter was one of the kids struck," the newspaper reported. "The girl suffered bruises to her leg. They said she and other witnesses told them that a woman got into a fistfight with a boy in the alley shortly after a group of kids got out of Silvestri. The woman then jumped in her vehicle and fled the scene when the youths were struck."
“She punched the kid in the face, got back in her car and ran over four other children, and left the scene,” Ron Lawrence said.

Hundreds of people from the white nationalist hate group Patriot Front reportedly marched through Washington to the Capitol on Saturday.
Videos posted online show members of the group marching in formation on the National Mall, wearing masks and uniforms and carrying shields and American flags.
In another video, a member of the Patriot Front is shown in the back of a box truck on his way to Washington.
"There is a caravan of box trucks heading to Washington, D.C., where Patriot Front is going to be marching, demonstrating, and giving some speeches from Thomas Rousseau," the man says, referring to the group's leader, before the other passengers in the truck shout, "Reclaim America!"
In another video, the same Patriot Front member is shown on foot in Washington. "We are headed to the Capitol for Thomas to give his speech. We are completely surrounded by an army of police and tons of spectators that are enjoying the show," the man says.
In another video, Rousseau is shown marching in front of a banner saying, "Victory or Death."
Rousseau says: "Our demonstrations are an exhibition of our unified capability to organize, to show our strength, not as brawlers or public nuisances, but as men capable of illustrating a message and seeking an America that more closely resembles the interests of its true people."
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Patriot Front "is a white nationalist hate group that formed in the aftermath of the deadly 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, of August 12, 2017."
"The organization broke off from Vanguard America (VA), a neo-Nazi group that participated in the chaotic demonstration," according to SPLC. "PF’s founder, Thomas Rousseau, led VA members during 'Unite the Right,' including James Alex Fields, Jr., the young man accused of murdering anti-racist protester Heather Heyer after fatally driving his vehicle into a crowd of protesters."

CNN host Jim Acosta blasted Mark Meadows on Saturday for whitewashing the events of Jan. 6 while continuing to push Donald Trump's "big lie" in his new book.
"The book is called The Chief's Chief," Acosta said. "It could be called The Cheat's Cheat. Mark Meadows is doing a little 'CYA' here — cover your autocrat."
Reporter Marshall Cohen responded by calling it "a very sycophantic book."
"It's 100 percent pro-Trump," Cohen told Acosta. "He says he wants Trump to run again in 2024, but besides all the politics, there is a lot of important stuff that will be of interest to the Jan. 6 investigation. Make no mistake, he is totally peddling the big lie, still. There is a lot of stuff in this book ... that's still pushing the same debunked claims about ballot irregularities and voter fraud that has no merit to it whatsoever, and then on Jan. 6, he's trying to absolve President Trump of any responsibility."
Cohen pointed to a passage from the book in which Meadows wrote that after leaving the stage during the "Stop the Steal" rally on Jan. 6, "President Trump let me know that he had been speaking metaphorically about the walk to the Capitol. He knew as well as anyone that we couldn't organize a trip like that on such short notice. It was clear the whole time that he didn't actually intend to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue with the crowd."
"They're washing their hands of this," Cohen said, before noting that several Jan. 6 insurrectionists have said they had no plans to go to the Capitol after Trump's speech until the former president gave them the idea.
"I covered Trump for a long time," Acosta responded. "I never heard him use the word 'metaphorically.' It makes you wonder, if he's still peddling the big lie, why should we believe anything in this book? It's a book for one reader I suppose — the dear leader."
"It might be for one reader, but there will be other readers on the Jan. 6 committee in the House," Cohen responded. "They are looking at this book. Of course, remember, Meadows is someone who got a subpoena. He will be going in to to testify on a few specific topics. They want him to talk about everything. They're saying now, some of the Democrats on that committee, they've said, 'If you can write about it in a book, for profit, you can talk about it under oath for our investigation.'"
