A little girl was struck by a car in the parking lot of a daycare in Linda Vista Tuesday morning, officials confirmed.
The collision happened around 9 a.m. in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 6700 block of Linda Vista Road near Glidden Street, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said.
The victim appeared to be about two years old, officials said. She was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital with minor, unspecified injuries. An SDPD sergeant said the girl was undergoing a CAT Scan at the hospital.
SDPD officials said the driver remained at the scene of the crash and cooperated with officers. She was released by police a short time later. It is unclear if she will face charges in the accident. The driver told reporters she was a minor and couldn’t speak to the news media.
A daycare for infants ages two and under operates out of the complex where the accident took place although, at this point, officials have not confirmed if the victim is a member of that daycare or whether she was being dropped off at the facility.
An employee of the daycare told NBC 7 the child was “tapped” by a car, but offered no further information, including whether the child was in the care of the daycare or a parent or guardian at the time of the accident.
No further details were immediately released by police at the scene.
