Dover girl, 10, struck by car
DOVER -; A 10-year-old girl was sent to the hospital after being struck by a car along Sixth Street Tuesday morning, according to Police Lt. Brad Gould.
Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded at 6:51 a.m. after an eastbound Black Chrysler driven by a 73-year-old woman hit the girl in the area of 64 Sixth St.
“The weather was a factor,” Gould said, adding there was a light coating of snow on the ground.
Gould said police believe the driver was not speeding, driving recklessly or under the influence of any substances.
“I don';t know if the kid was at a school bus stop or not,” Gould said, adding the girl could have been waiting to go to school at that time of day.
Gould said the girl, who was not in a crosswalk, was taken to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. No charges have been filed.
