HOUSTON (CBS Houston) An eight-year-old girl was struck by a truck and is in critical condition as a result of the accident.

According to reports, the accident happened sometime after 7 p.m. on Pine Center Drive near Royal Gardens Drive on Tuesday. Two children were riding their bicycles in the street. One of the children was struck by an oncoming white pickup truck as both children crossed the street on those bikes.

The motorist in the truck was turning southbound on Royal Shadows. It is possible that the motorist either did not see the girl or the eight-year-old biker pulled out in front of the motorist. The girl was struck and run over.

Additional reports indicate that the young victim was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital via LifeFlight.

Officials further stated that the driver of the truck remained on scene. Officials also stated that they believe that the motorist was not speeding or under the influence of any chemical at the time of the accident.

There were no other details released at the time of this report.
