ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. -

A taxi hit an 11-year-old girl after she ran across the street, sending her to the hospital.

Emily Surles, 11, of Greenville was struck crossing North Carolina Highway 58 in Atlantic Beach near the Dunescape Villas around 8:30 PM on Monday, between Ocean Ridge and Lee Drive, Maj. Jeff Harvey with Atlantic Beach Police said.

She was taken to Carteret General Hospital with one or two broken legs and abrasions, then airlifted to Vidant Medical Center, Harvey said.

The driver, Kevin Guthrie, was traveling eastbound when Emily ran across the street behind another vehicle going in the opposite direction, according to a witness. He did not see her until it was too late, and could not avoid a collision, said Harvey.

Police interviewed Guthrie at the scene. He is not facing any charges.
