ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - An 11-year-old girl was struck in the head by the mirror of an oncoming vehicle on Masonic Drive in Alexandria on Tuesday, November 16. However, we can report that this was non-fatal.

KALB had received comments about the incident on social media. We reached out to our contact with APD, who said the girl was walking down Masonic with another child and was about to cross the road when a vehicle approached.

The other child pulled the girl away to avoid the oncoming vehicle but was struck in the head by the vehicle’s mirror.

APD said the girl is fine but was taken to a hospital to be checked out.

No other information is available at this time.
