Girl hit by motorcycle

Start­Frag­ment

A mo­tor­cycle struck and in­jured a 7-year-old girl crit­ic­ally as she was cross­ing an Academy Gar­dens street last Thursday.

The vic­tim suffered severe head and body trauma, po­lice said. Au­thor­it­ies did not re­lease her iden­tity.

The ac­ci­dent oc­curred at about 7:30 p.m. on the 9200 block of An­na­pol­is Road when the girl dar­ted in­to the street and the mo­tor­cycle struck her. A 31-year-old man was aboard the 2001 Kawa­saki Vul­can. He re­mained at the scene and has not been charged crim­in­ally.

The girl was taken to Aria Health-Tor­res­dale, then trans­por­ted to St. Chris­toph­er’s Hos­pit­al for Chil­dren. Au­thor­it­ies have not re­leased her iden­tity or up­dated con­di­tion, cit­ing med­ic­al pri­vacy reg­u­la­tions. ••
