Two people were trying to cross S.W. 21st Street in Topeka when one of them was hit by a car. A 14-year-old girl was injured in the pedestrian accident.
The other female stopped in the center turn lane of the five-lane street to wait for passing traffic, Thompson said. The victim continued running and was struck by a white car traveling east in the left-hand lane on S.W. 21st.
When police arrived, the victim was lying in a grassy area just south of the S.W. 21st Street curb. Her injuries included abrasions, but she was conscious, police said. She was taken to St. Francis Health Center by American Medical Response ambulance.
The driver of the car was not hurt in the accident. No charges have been filed and the police are still investigating.
