The vehicle struck the victim at a residence in the 1300 block of Terrace Road in Clearwater.  The initial report from a neighbor was that the driver fled the scene on foot, carrying what appeared to be a rifle.

This prompted multiple schools in the area to go into lockout status.

The victim was transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg as a trauma alert. The extent of her injuries are unknown at this time but not believed to be life-threatening.
