A Dunedin schoolgirl is treated by ambulance staff in the
middle of State Highway 1 (Cumberland St) at the intersection
of Dundas St in the city's student quarter yesterday.
The girl was hit by a vehicle travelling south on the one-way
system about 4pm.
Sergeant Chris MacAulay said the year 12 pupil was
transported by ambulance to Dunedin Hospital with leg
Part of SH1 and Dundas St were temporarily closed while the
girl was treated at the scene.
Police were investigating whether the pedestrian or the
driver of the vehicle had the right of way.
Sgt MacAulay said the incident served as a timely reminder to
pedestrians to make sure they were seen by motorists before
walking across roads, regardless of whether they had the
right of way.
