Injuries are not considered life threatening

A seven-year-old Los Alamos girl was hit by a car as she crossed Central Avenue near Ashley Pond shortly before noon Wednesday.

The child was transported to Los Alamos Medical Center “alert and conscious,” according to police.

Deputy Chief Kevin Purtymun said this morning that she was treated and released.

Following an investigation into the accident, Purtymun said the driver would not be cited.

“The child wasn’t in the cross walk and stepped out from behind a parked SUV,” he said. “The driver was going slow enough to stop and not make this accident a tragedy.”
