An eight-year-old child was injured Friday after being struck by a vehicle.

According to Superior Police Chief Mark Nipp, on Friday, May 23, 2014, at about 4:09 p.m. the department received multiple 911 calls reporting a vehicle-pedestrian traffic collision on Highway 60 at Western. Superior Police and Fire were dispatched and arrived minutes later.

Paramedics from Superior Fire began administering emergency medical treatment to the pedestrian, who was later transported by helicopter to Phoenix Children’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle, Dana Acosta, of Glendale, was on her way to Globe when the juvenile ran into her lane of travel. Acosta attempted to avoid striking the juvenile; however, she was unable to.

Traffic was disrupted on Highway 60 for over an hour as units from the Superior Police Department investigated the accident. The Arizona Department of Public Safety responded to assist with traffic control.
