Update: Police Tuesday clarified that the suspect's car is white, not tan as originally reported.

A teenage girl was hospitalized Monday morning after reportedly being hit by a car near Mountain View High School, according to Meridian Police Department Sgt. Matt Parsons.

The crash occurred shortly after 7 a.m. at the intersection of Locust Grove Road and East Mastiff Street, across from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

A 15-year-old girl was crossing Locust Grove with the crossing signal when a car ran through the light and hit her, leaving the scene southbound on Locust Grove. Witnesses described the vehicle as a tan- or champagne-colored passenger vehicle, and Parsons said the vehicle’s driver side-view mirror was damaged.

The girl was taken to a local hospital to be treated, and Parsons said her injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Police had not yet confirmed whether the girl was a student at Mountain View as of 11 a.m.

Officials urged anyone with information about the crash or the driver to call police at 208-888-6678.
