NEWARK (CBS SF) – A 14-year-old girl has been hospitalized with major injuries after a car struck her while she was in a crosswalk in Newark this morning, police said.
Sgt. Manuel DeSerpa said police received calls at 7:37 a.m. reporting that a car had struck a pedestrian at the intersection of Cherry Street and Redeker Place.
DeSerpa said investigators determined that the girl was walking east in a crosswalk on Cherry Street when she was struck by the driver of a 1997 Honda Civic heading south.
The driver of the Honda is cooperating with police and at this point hasn’t been cited by authorities, who are investigating the circumstances of the accident, DeSerpa said.
