Child struck by vehicle in Portsmouth

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – A child hit by a car in Portsmouth Thursday sustained only non-life-threatening injuries.

Around 6:30 p.m. a driver struck a 6-year-old girl who came from behind a parked car in the 5700 block of Hedgerow Lane, according to authorities. Portsmouth police said the child moved too fast for the driver to see the girl.
