A 13-year-old Colfax girl suffered moderate injuries this morning when she was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street on her way to school.
The teen was walking from a private driveway about 8:45 a.m. and began crossing West Weimar Cross Road, directly in front of Weimar Hills School, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. There is no crosswalk at this location, and CHP officials said Hawkins entered the roadway directly in front of a northbound 1997 Saturn Wagon driven by 20-year-old Casey Stillford of Colfax.
The vehicle struck the girl, who was transported by ambulance to Sutter Roseville Medical Center.
The CHP reported that the collision is under investigation, but neither drugs nor alcohol was involved.
