A six-year-old student ran out from between parked vehicles without looking when she was struck by a car Monday afternoon.
On June 18 at 3:09 p.m., members of Williams Lake RCMP Detachment responded to a report of a pedestrian motor vehicle incident on Cameron Street at Marie Sharpe School.
Police say the child was running across the street to her mother’s vehicle that was parked on the other side of the street.
The girl was not in a crosswalk at the time and the driver of the vehicle was unable to react in time to avoid hitting the child. When the child fell to the asphalt she sustained a two-centimetre superficial cut to her arm.
She was taken to Cariboo Memorial Hospital where she was examined and released.
No charges are being contemplated against the driver as a result of this incident.
