SAN JOSE -- A 6-year-old girl was seriously injured but is expected to survive after she reportedly darted out into the street and was hit by a car in a South San Jose cul-de-sac Tuesday afternoon, police said.

San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol said that a female motorist was in Thorndale Court off Tuers Road when the girl ran out from behind a parked motor home and was hit.

The girl was taken to the hospital for what police described as serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The driver stopped and cooperated with police, who said impaired driving does not appear to have been factor.
