A 12-year-old girl suffered a broken arm and leg when she was struck by a vehicle while crossing a San Diego street, authorities said Sunday.

It was reported at 10:48 p.m. Saturday in the 10600 block of Tierrasanta Boulevard, said San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.

The girl was crossing the street in a crosswalk but against a red pedestrian crossing signal, Heims said.

“An unknown vehicle was westbound on Tierrasanta Boulevard and struck the pedestrian,” he said. The vehicle fled the scene.

Paramedics took the girl to a hospital for treatment of a broken left humerus and broken left femur, which were not life-threatening injuries, Heims said.
