Morinville – A 14-year-old Morinville girl was rushed to hospital in Edmonton Wednesday night after being struck crossing 100 Avenue at 99 Street.
RCMP responded to the incident which occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m. Police say the teen was crossing with two others at the marked crosswalk when she was struck by a westbound vehicle. She was taken by ambulance to hospital in Edmonton with undisclosed injuries.
The collision was still under investigation Thursday morning. An RCMP Traffic Analyst attended the scene to assist in the investigation, and RCMP are reporting weather conditions and alcohol have been ruled out as contributing factor in the collision.
The incident is the third time a pedestrian has been hit crossing 100 Avenue in the past few months. On Oct. 21, 2011 two were hit on 100 Avenue the same day. On that day a 12-year-old girl and an adult cyclist were hit in two unrelated incidents.
RCMP confirmed Thursday afternoon the teen struck Wednesday night suffered a sprained ankle, a slight concussion and some bruises, but is back home and doing well.
As of Thursday afternoon no charges had been laid in the collision.
