(Napoleon, Ind.) – A little girl is recovering in the hospital after being hit by a car on a busy highway Monday.
Ripley County Sheriff’s deputies were called to State Road 229-Main Street in Napoleon at about 5:19 p.m. Adrianna Estes, 6, of Napoleon, was hit in the roadway by a westbound 2012 Buick LaCrosse driven by Mabel Flick, 85, of Holton.
Estes suffered lacerations to her head and abrasions to her knees. She was taken by aircare to University Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati mostly as a precaution for her injuries, Sheriff Tom Grills said.
The sheriff said speed does not appear to be a factor in the accident.
The accident is currently under investigation by Ripley County Sheriff’s Deputy Lt. Randy Holt, who was assisted at the scene by Napoleon Fire, Ripley County Medic, and Rescue 69.
