ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police say a 12-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a SUV as she walked in a crosswalk at a middle school.

Police say the girl was struck while using a crosswalk at Cleveland Middle School and that one vehicle northbound on Louisiana stopped to allow her to cross but that she was struck by the SUV when she entered a second northbound lane.

Police say alcohol is not a factor in the crash which occurred at about 5 p.m. Thursday.
