Girl, 5, hit by pickup

A 5-year-old girl was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital with minor injuries after she was struck by a pickup Monday morning in the area of F 1/2 and 31 roads, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The girl was walking on F 1/2 Road with two other children at 8:15 a.m. when a Chevrolet truck driven by a 39-year-old man hit the girl, State Patrol said.

The driver told authorities he saw the children and slowed down. However, the girl darted in front of his vehicle, causing him to “brake and swerve” to try and avoid her, trooper D.J. Erickson said. The man was not ticketed.

The accident was not in a school zone, but District 51 officials came to the scene, Erickson said.

Colorado State Patrol reminded pedestrians to walk against the direction of traffic when possible so pedestrians can see oncoming traffic.
