LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
A 14-year-old girl was struck by a vehicle Thursday when she attempted to cross a busy section of highway in Lake Charles.
The accident happened on Interstate 210 near Highway 14 around 5 p.m.
Police said the girl was crossing the roadway with friends when she was hit. She was on a bicycle, police said.
On Friday morning, Lake Charles police said the girl remains in critical condition.
"The investigation revealed that the 14-year-old female victim was on I-210 Eastbound in the inside lane and impact was unavoidable," said Mark Kraus, Lake Charles Police Deputy Chief.
"Any time a tragic scene occurs, it's an opportunity for all of us to learn a few things and without absolutely placing blame, or faulting anyone, at this time, this is just a learning opportunity for the public to know that interstate roadways are not made for pedestrians or bicycles. They're not meant for anything other than being in a vehicle. And we hope that this message gets out to kids and anyone who will hear us," Kraus added.
Eastbound traffic from I-210 was diverted onto Enterprise Boulevard and traffic was delayed for some time following in the incident.
