(MGN Online)

A 6-year-old girl was taken to the hospital after being hit by a car near her elementary school Friday morning.

At around 8:30, police say the girl was hit by a car in the driveway drop-off at Hoover Elementary School.

Initial investigation indicates she had been dropped off and may have dropped an object when getting out the car.

While she was crouched down, police say the car that dropped her off pulled away. Another car that was coming up from behind the drop-off vehicle did not see the child and struck her, driving over her, police say.

She was taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The incident is currently under investigation. No charges have been filed at this time.

Police remind drivers to pay extra special attention around school areas and places children gather.
