SAN MARCOS (CNS) - A 13-year-old girl was hospitalized Friday with serious injuries after she darted into traffic and was struck by a sport utility vehicle, authorities said.

The girl was hit by a Ford Expedition in the 500 block of Mission Road, just east of Knoll Road, about 2:50 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Deputy Frank Stalzer.

The Expedition was traveling eastbound on Mission Road when the girl ran out into the roadway, crossing the street in-between cars before being struck, Stalzer said.

Paramedics took her to Rady Children's Hospital with serious injuries, he said. No injuries to the driver were reported.

An investigation into the accident was under way, Stalzer said.
