A child was struck by a vehicle this morning on Hwy. 1 in St. Bernard.
The child ran in front of a south-bound car.
The driver was unable to avoid the child due to other children being on the roadside at the same time, and struck her.
The child was transported by helicopter to Halifax with what are believed to be serious injuries.
The driver of the car was not injured.
The matter remains under investigation.
Highway 1 was closed for 90 minutes but has since re-opened.
