LUBBOCK,TX (KCBD) - A 4-year-old Lubbock County girl was rushed to the hospital after DPS says she was hit by an inexperienced driver. Investigators say the driver was east on Woodrow near Avenue P just after 7:30pm Sunday.
The young driver told DPS it looked like the little girl was going to run out into the street so he swerved to miss her, but the girl stayed in the yard. That's where he struck the girl.
The little girl had a cut on her head and deputies say she could have a broken rib. She was taken to University Medical Center with moderate injuries.
