The crash occurred Tuesday night in Gloucester County, reported.

The driver slammed into the girl and her horse and fled the scene.

Cops are looking for an older-model, light-colored pickup truck in connection with the callous crash, police said.

The injured teen was taken with non-life-threatening injuries to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where she was listed in stable condition, police reported.

The doomed horse died at the scene and was turned over to its owner, reported. The other rider and his steed were not injured.
