A child was struck by a motorist this morning at the corner of Hill Street and 13th Street on the border of the Algonquin and Park Hill neighborhoods.
The incident was reported by WDRB, WLKY, and WAVE3.
The collision took place a little before 7:30a.m. on Monday, February 8. The child was taken to Kosair Children’s Hospital with what news reports called “non-life-threatening” injuries.
Details of the incident are scarce, with an average length of only 50 words in the available reports.
WAVE3 noted that a JCPS school bus stop is located at the site of the collision, so the child may have been on his or her way to school.
Both Hill and 13th streets are two-way at this intersection, with bike lanes and a turning lane present on Hill Street. Sidewalks are present at the intersection, but deteriorate quickly in the surrounding industrial areas of the neighborhood.
The speed limit is 35 miles per hour on Hill and 25mph on 13th. Just south of the intersection, 13th drops to 15 miles per hour and speed bumps are present around the Park Hill Houses. Speed limit signs are hard to come by on both streets.
