MESA, Ariz. — A 13-year-old Mesa girl was hospital after she was hit Monday morning while riding her bicycle.
Mesa police said it happened in the area of Gilbert Road and Southern Avenue.
Mesa Fire Department spokesman Forrest Smith said the girl was in a crosswalk when she was hit at a relatively high rate of speed.
Witnesses said the car had a green light and other cars had stopped for her, but the car that hit her didn’t see her, Smith said.
The girl suffered head, arm and leg injuries and is listed in critical condition.
With schools reopening Monday, police are asking drivers to please slowdown and be aware of children near school zones.
