Girl hospitalized after auto-pedestrian accident

LOGAN — A eight-year-old girl was hospitalized Thursday, after being struck by a car at the intersection of 200 East 400 North.

Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said the girl was walking north on 200 East and tried to cross 400 North, against the light.

The girl made it across three lanes of traffic safely before being hit by a 2013 Fiat, driven by a 15-year-old male. The driver had his permit and was with a parent, learning to drive.

Hooley said the accident occurred at 11:25 a.m.

When paramedics arrived on the scene they transported to girl to Logan Regional Hospital. She had a broken wrist and bruised pelvis.

Investigators said the girl was lucky she wasn’t more seriously injured. The driver told police he was reportedly slowing down, to make a right turn and struck the girl traveling between 20 to 25 mph.

Hooley said investigators are unsure why the girl was unattended by an adult. An investigation into the accident is continuing but no citations have been issued.
