Girl struck while crossing intersection
A 14-year-old girl was struck by a pickup truck in Institute early Tuesday morning.
Kanawha County Deputy C.E. O'Neal said it was raining when the accident happened.
Laura Clark, 56, of Dunbar, was turning east on to Fairlawn Avenue from Finney Hollow Road after coming to a stop at the intersection about 6:20 a.m. when her 2012 Toyota Tacoma came into contact with the girl, who had just begun to cross the street. O'Neal said Clark did not see the girl, and hit her while going very slowly.
The girl was taken to Thomas Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No citations have been issued in the accident.
