GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — A 12-year-old ATV passenger was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash with a truck on Monday morning, Delaware State Police said.

The crash happened when three juveniles riding a Honda Recon ATV pulled out of a private driveway onto Shingle Point Road in Georgetown, police said. A southbound flatbed truck pulling a trailer moved into the northbound lane to avoid the ATV, but ended up striking the rear of the ATV.

The rear passenger on the ATV, a 12-year-old girl, was ejected and landed on the pavement, police said. The driver of the truck stopped to check on the occupants of the ATV, then left, police said.

The girl was flown to a hospital in critical condition, police said.

Police describe the truck that hit the ATV as a white truck with a black flatbed, pulling a trailer with red wooden sides.
