A young girl suffered minor injuries after Atlantic City's mayor struck her while he was driving on Saturday.
Police said in a statement Saturday night that Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian was driving westbound on Route 30 in the resort when the 7-year-old girl ran from the sidewalk and into the road outside Highgate Apartments. The girl struck the passenger rear door of Guardian's city-owned car, police said.
She was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.
Police deemed the accident unavoidable and did not issue Guardian a summons.
But investigators did ask anyone with information on the incident to call them at 609-347-5744. Tips can also be texted anonymously to tip411 (847411) by beginning the text with "ACPD."
