ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A teenage girl was struck while apparently jaywalking at an Escondido intersection, and seriously hurt, police said Saturday.

The incident happened at approximately 8:45 p.m., Friday, at the intersection of Centre City Parkway and 13th Avenue, said Police Sgt. Doug Sams.

A 16-year-old girl was crossing westbound 13th Avenue against "don't walk" signal when she was struck by a Ford Bronco, driven by a 63-year-old San Ysidro man, traveling south on Centre City Parkway, Sams said.

The girl, whose name was not released, suffered serious head injuries and was taken to an area hospital, Sams said. The driver of the Bronco was not cited.
