NASHVILLE, TN. – According to an online news story from fox17.com, a young girl was struck by a vehicle as she was crossing a street in Nashville, Tennessee. The girl was walking to her school and was injured in the crash. No one involved has been identified at this time.*
The accident occurred in the early morning hours of January 17 on West Trinity Lane in Nashville. Shortly before 7 a.m., a young girl was walking to her “Before Care” program at Haynes Middle School. Her parent let her out of a car on West Trinity Lane, and the girl attempted to cross the street toward her school.
A passing vehicle then struck the girl. The cause of the accident is not yet known, but it appears the driver did not see the girl before the collision. It was still dark outside, and no crossing guard was on duty. The girl was reportedly not inside a crosswalk at the time, but reports did not indicate whether a crosswalk was available. The crash was not on school property.
The girl sustained a broken femur in the crash, and emergency responders transported her to a local hospital for treatment. She is expected to fully recover. Officials have not released her name or age, though she is assumed to be middle-school aged.
