LOGAN — A young girl was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after being struck by a truck Tuesday morning.
Logan City Police Sgt. Scott Murray said Tina Telford was walking her bike across the intersection at 1000 North and Main Street when she was struck by a white Chevrolet pickup, turning right.
“We are not sure at this point if the impact knocked her away from her bike,” said Murray. “The bike itself was dragged about a 140 feet up the roadway, where it was found up here.”
Telford was wearing a helmet. She was treated by paramedics and then released to her mother. She was later taken to the hospital as a precaution.
Telford was traveling to McDonald’s for breakfast. She said she was walking her bike across the crosswalk when the truck hit her.
“I was a bit scared and petrified,” said Telford. “I didn’t want to move.”
Telford said she doesn’t remember being dragged by the truck.
Murray said police are investigating the accident.
