A police officer mowed down by a car going more than 120kmh in Sydney's west is still in hospital، as the search for the hit and run driver continues، daily mail reported.

Shocking footage of the crash shows the officer waving down a blue Mazda 3 with reflective flags and wearing a hi-vis vest on Roberts Road in Greenacre.

The car is then seen swerving dramatically to overtake a taxi and in the process takes out the policeman.

The officer tries to jump out of the way، but is struck and flips over the speeding car before it speeds off.

He stays on the ground for just a moment before pulling himself up، limping off the road and collapsing into a heap.

The man remains in Concord Hospital، with doctors running tests on his ankle، leg and knee.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday، Detective Inspector Katie Orr said her colleague was 'very very lucky' to have walked away with only those injuries.

Police are now turning their focus to finding the driver of the vehicle، and urging them to come forward.

Det Insp Orr told media they had already sourced some CCTV footage of the incident and expected to find more.

She explained while it was possible they did not see the officer while travelling at such a high speed on the 70kmh road، there is no way they could have ignored the dramatic crash.

'The driver would have known they hit the officer and then continued to drive on،' she said.

'If you were the driver of the motor vehicle، I would urge you to attend your nearest police station and hand yourself in.
