An accident on Vernon’s Hospital Hill continues to be the focus of a police investigation.

On Thursday, a 14-year-old girl was struck by a vehicle on 32nd Street at about 2:30 p.m.

“She did suffer some head and ankle injuries and is still in hospital,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson, Friday.

According to RCMP, the teenager ran out on to 32nd Street in front of a vehicle, and while the driver attempted to avoid the girl, she was apparently struck by a side mirror.

The driver of the vehicle was cooperating with the police investigation.
