The 22-year-old, of Trevelyan Drive, Newbiggin Hall, Newcastle, was only caught when Alishba's dad managed to make out part of the black Vauxhall Vectra's registration number as it drove away.
But despite crushing the youngster's leg - leaving her wheelchair-bound for several months - Baty did not show up at Newcastle Magistrates' Court magistrates' court

The court heard how Alishba's father described the car that nearly took his daughter's life and police traced it to Baty, who had no insurance and only a provisional driving licence provisional driving licence n (BRIT) (AUT) → carnet m de conducir provisional see also L-plates . When officers investigating the case went to his house to arrest him, Baty asked: "Is this about the accident?" Baty yesterday claimed through his solicitor that his boss would not give him the time off to attend court.
He denied failing to stop and produce insurance details after a road accident, but admitted using a motor vehicle without insurance and without a licence.
Issuing a warrant for Baty's immediate arrest, the chairwoman of the magistrates said: "We have heard from the witnesses about the facts of that day and read the police interviews.
"We are convinced Mr Baty knew an accident had occurred, but failed to stop.
"We find him guilty on both counts.
"We have also heard why he is not here and why he should be here and will issue a warrant for arrest without bail."
Alishba's father, Athar Khan, speaking after the verdict, said: "I am completely satisfied and believe that the magistrates have done the right thing and will now give out the correct punishment for what happened.
"It was wrong that he didn't come to court, though.
"I was disappointed that he didn't stop after he hit my daughter and I'm disappointed that he didn't show his face today and take responsibility for what he did." Alishba, who lives with her parents, Rana and Athar, and siblings siblings npl (formal) → frères et sœurs mpl (de mêmes parents) Sabhi, Ayesha and Saboor, had been climbing into her dad's car outside the family home when the accident happened.
