A 14-year-old girl was seriously injured Friday morning when her hand was pinned under a car that hit her in West Valley City.

The girl was crossing 3900 South at 1300 West with three other girls about 8 a.m., dodging traffic as they crossed against a red light, said Lt. Dalan Taylor. One of the girls was struck by a westbound Honda Civic, suffering head injuries. When the car came to a stop, her hand was pinned under a tire, Taylor said.
