Car hits girl walking bike across street and flees

A 14-year-old girl walking her bike across the street in a crosswalk had a too-close-for-comfort encounter with a car that then fled the scene on Wednesday, Sept. 21, according to Menlo Park police.

The hit-and-run occurred at about 9 a.m., the girl's father told the Almanac.

The car, described as a newer model maroon sedan driven by a woman possibly 30 to 40 years old, struck the girl's bike while making a right turn at Middle Avenue and El Camino Real.

Police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said the girl's ankle hurt where the bike collided with her foot after being struck by the car's bumper, and the teen turned to a parent for medical care.
