Traffic investigators say a Warren teenager was seriously injured after being hit by a car along Atlantic Street Northeast Monday afternoon.

Witnesses told police that a 14-year-old girl ran out from behind a stopped car near Belvedere NE at around 3:30 p.m. and was struck by a car being driven by a woman from Cortland.

The driver told officers she didn’t have time to stop her car for the child, who was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital with injuries described as serious.

Police say the girl was at fault because she was not walking in a crosswalk at the time of the accident.

Officers have not provided an update on the victim’s condition.

Although the accident happened about a block away from Lincoln PK-8 School, the report does not indicate if the girl was a student there.
