An 11-year-old girl is in hospital after she was struck by a minivan on Monday.

Red Deer City RCMP say the girl was riding her bike near 40th Avenue and 39th Street at about 3:35 p.m.

The girl dismounted her bike and proceeded to walk through the southbound crosswalk as the “walk” sign flashed.

She was struck by a westbound minivan attempting to make a right-hand turn on 40th Avenue.

The girl was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre by ambulance and treated for a broken finger and multiple contusions.

Red Deer City RCMP Cpl. Kathe DeHeer said they routinely investigate collisions involving turns at intersections.

“Often the motorists check for traffic prior to making a turn; however, they do not check for pedestrians or cyclists,” she said.

RCMP are reminding cyclists and pedestrians to make sure they are seen by drivers before they proceed through an intersection.
