New Castle County Police say a 13-year-old was hit by a car when she tried to run across Centerville Road.

It happened Thursday about 5:20 p.m. Forty-two-year-old Lisa Caprio of Wilmington was driving a Jeep and hit the girl, who was trying to cross the road. Witnesses told police that the girl had run between two cars that were traveling in the opposite direction just before she was hit.

The girl was taken to A.I. DuPont Hospital for a head injury and was released Friday.

Caprio was not charged.
