CENTERVILLE — A 5-year-old girl was injured in an auto-pedestrian accident Friday in Centerville.
The incident was reported about 8:40 a.m. in a residential area near 2025 N. 560 West, said Centerville Police Chief Paul Child. A girl was walking to school with her sister when she darted into the street for an unknown reason, he said.
The girl ran in front of a Suburban going about 20 mph, the chief said. The driver did not have time to stop prior to hitting the girl.
Child said the girl suffered an “obvious fractured femur” and was taken by medical helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital. She was conscious but not alert when she was taken the hospital, he said.
The girls were walking to Reading Elementary School, 360 W. 2025 North, according to police.
