ROTHSCHILD, Wis (WSAU) An SUV struck a 13-year-old girl on a bicycle yesterday in Rothschild. Police are not classifying this as a hit-and-run, but they want to talk to the driver.
The girl was struck at the intersection of Grand Avenue and the Highway 29 off-ramp. She was knocked to the ground but wasn't run over. The driver got out of the SUV, helped her up, and then drove off.
When she got home, the girl's mother called 9-1-1 to report the accident. The biker wasn't seriously hurt, suffering only minor scrapes and bruises.
The girl didn't get the license plates of the SUV. It was a turquoise-colored vehicle, driven by a man with grey hair in his 40s or 50s.
