WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- An 9-year-old girl was hit by a car in Northeast D.C. Thursday morning, police say. The girl was reportedly conscious and breathing, and is expected to be okay.
According to DC Police, a call came in at 7:41 a.m. about the incident taking place at the intersection of Central Avenue and Clinton Street in Northeast, in front of Friendship Public Charter School.
The driver stayed on the scene, police say. The driver was also transported with non-life threatening injuries.
A witness told WUSA 9 that cars speed through the area in front of the school often and that there is no crossing guard posted in that immediate area. She said she wasn't surprised someone got hit and believes the school will put a crossing guard at the entrance now.
