A 10-year-old girl has been injured after being allegedly hit by a driver who went through a red light in Sydney’s south-west.
Police were told the girl was crossing Hoxton Park Road at traffic lights about 7.15pm yesterday in Liverpool, when she was hit by a car believed to be a black Audi SUV near Gill Avenue, and knocked onto the road.
“Police were told a 10-year-old girl was crossing the road at traffic lights, when she was hit by a vehicle and knocked onto the roadway,” a NSW Police statement read.
“It is alleged the driver had travelled through the intersection against a red light.”
The driver did not stop to assist the girl and continued to drive away west along Hoxton Park Road.
The girl was taken to Westmead Children’s Hospital in a stable condition with possible leg and hip injuries.
Liverpool City Police Area Command officers have launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
