Sonic the hedgehog crossed the streets at lightning speed by ___ across the street.

I am not sure if spinning is the word, because it doesn't exactly mean "rolling one's body over and over again and in a fast manner", so I am wondering what's the right word or phrase to convey this meaning.

  • That definition is a bit limited. A top spins about a vertical axis. I can't think of a better word for Sonic's movement.

"Spinning" is fine for a general description. In the game, this move is called a "Spin dash". So if you are talking about the game you could say "spin-dashing".
