A 19-month-old girl is in serious, but stable condition after being hit by car in Upper Leacock Township.

The incident occurred on Feb. 11 at 6:15 p.m. on the 200 block of Monterey Road.

According to police, the 19-month old was playing in the snow with siblings when she wandered onto the road and was hit by a 1996 Dodge Ram pick-up truck.

The girl suffered multiple injuries and was transported to Lancaster General Hospital before being moved to Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.

A medic helicopter was unable to respond due to the existing weather conditions.

Police say speed was not a factor in the crash and that the driver of the truck came to a stop after striking the girl and called 911.

The crash investigation will continue and additional information will be made available as it becomes known.
