Burley Girl Hit by Car
Burley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) – Police in Burley say a young girl was injured after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Overland Avenue at about 12:30 this afternoon. Reports indicate two girls were on the east side of the road near 24th street crossing to the west.
