Teen Struck on Boone County Road

A 14-year old girl was injured Thursday after being struck by a vehicle while walking from Conner Middle School.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office said it happened when a black Chevrolet Tahoe was headed southbound on Limaburg Road in Hebron when the teen girl tried to run across the road amid heavy vehicular traffic.

The girl was unconscious, but came to. She suffered injuries to her hip/pelvic area and was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital, the sheriff's office said.

Witnesses told deputies that three girls were walking on the sidewalk when one girl crossed Limaburg, and then turned back, stopped in the middle of the road, and then turned around again to cross, nearly being struck by a car.

The teen who was struck by the Tahoe attempted to follow just seconds later, witnesses said.\

The third girl did not attempt to cross the road.

Deputies said that speed is not suspected to be a factor in the accident.
