A 14-year-old Pleasanton girl is reportedly still in the hospital after being hit by a truck near Harvest Park Middle School Wednesday evening.
Traffic Officer Marty Billdt said the girl is under observation at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, but didn't have any broken bones or other major injuries.
Reports state that around 5:30 p.m. a Dodge pickup truck was traveling southbound on Greenwood Road, south of Valley Avenue, and stopped at a stop sign at Alameda Drive. Upon continuing through the intersection, police said the collision occurred as the bicyclist traveled westbound on Alameda Drive in front of the truck. Billdt said the bicycle was said to have been lodged under the front right tire and it appears that the teen was knocked off the bicycle, but it is unclear at this time if she was run over.
While the bicyclist was wearing a helmet, she was wearing dark clothes and was without lighting equipment required for night riding.
No charges were filed, according to police.
