Fortunately no one died in this accident but it shows that none of us are safe.
A little girl was hospitalized Friday afternoon after witnesses say she was struck by a minivan.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Triana boulevard and village drive southwest just before three this afternoon. A witness told WAFF 48 News that a crossing guard had her hands in the air, instructing traffic to stop, but the minivan continued through the intersection.
The van was able to stop before seriously injuring the girl, who was attempting to cross Triana Boulevard.
Huntsville police officers directed traffic for a short while after the accident. A HEMSI crew transported the girl to the hospital as a precaution, but she is expected to be fine.
