Pedestrian watch: 13-year-old girl struck

It seems like Providence has an overabundance of pedestrians getting struck by cars.

An unbylined piece from today's ProJo:

PROVIDENCE — A 13-year-old student at Perry Middle School was struck by a car as she walked to school yesterday morning. Sgt. Paul F. Zienowicz said the student, whose name was not available, was treated at Hasbro Children’s Hospital for minor injuries.

The accident occurred shortly after 8 a.m. at Hartford and Laurel Hill avenues.

Zienowicz said a westbound motorist on Hartford stopped to allow the girl to cross the street and the driver of a car on Laurel Hill mistook the stop as a gesture to allow him to drive out onto Hartford. When the driver turned left onto Hartford, he looked at the stopped car rather than where he was going and his car struck the girl, the sergeant said.
