Watch This Pedestrian Get Tossed Into Air by Buena Park Hit-And-Run Driver: VIDEO

One of the sickest hit-and-runs to get captured on video (after the jump) was distributed by Buena Park police this week in hopes that someone will recognize the car involved.

Cops say the 20-year-old victim was crossing Campus Drive at Orangethorpe Avenue near Buena Park High School when a car plowed into him at full speed, causing the victim to become airborne and flip over.

It happened ...

... Sunday at about 1:03 p.m., according to a statement from Buena Park police: The victim, who was not identified, was taken to UCI Medical Center with "non-life-threatening injuries."

Fox 11 News reported that the car actually had to go around another vehicle in order to hit the guy: His brother was walking with him and attempted to chase down the driver.

Cops say a man and woman were in the car.
