An 8-year-old girl was hit by an unlicensed driver near Horrall
Elementary School in San Mateo Friday morning, according to police.
The driver, a 38-year-old San Mateo resident, struck the girl with
a gold Toyota Corolla in the 900 block of Ocean View Avenue at about 7:40
a.m. Police did not release the driver's name.
The girl was alert and talking when she was taken to a hospital
and her injuries were not considered life threatening, police said.
"This collision occurred at a crowded time during the morning drop-off period, and thankfully the young girl was the only person struck," police said in a media release. "SMPD is working closely with the school as it appears that morning drop-off procedures were not followed by the driver."
The driver was cited for driving without a license and released.
Drugs and alcohol are not considered factors in the collision.
Additional psychologists have been called to assist students and
staff at the school Friday, according to police.
"The details and conclusions of the traffic collision are still under investigation," police added.
