A 13-year-old Mesa girl is hospitalized after she was hit Monday morning while riding her bicycle.

Mesa police say it happened in the area of Gilbert Road and Southern Avenue.

Mesa Fire Department spokesman Forrest Smith says the girl was in a crosswalk when she was hit at a relatively high rate of speed.

Smith says witnesses said the car had a green light and other cars had stopped for her, but the car that hit her didn't see her.

The girl suffered head, arm and leg injuries and is listed in critical condition.

With schools reopening Monday, police are asking drivers to please slowdown and be aware of children near school zones.
