SPANISH FORK, Utah — A 12-year-old girl is recovering after being struck by a SUV Tuesday night in Spanish Fork.

According to Lt. Brandon Anderson with the Spanish Fork Police, the girl was riding her roller blades, and was wearing her helmet and knee pads at the time of the incident. Additionally, Anderson says the incident happened in the area of 100 S. Spanish Fork Drive at 6:30 p.m. 

Police say the girl was transported to an area hospital in stable condition. However, police say she may have a possible broken leg and internal injuries.

The incident happened in a residential area close to the girl’s home, according to Anderson. Her parents were not on scene at the time of the incident, but they were later notified. 

Anderson says 100 South is a state road and is quite busy. He says the girl was at a intersection waiting to cross. The crosswalk was not marked. However, it’s a legal one, according to police.

The driver of the SUV remained on scene in Spanish Fork and was cooperative with the investigation. Anderson says no citation was issued.
