A 13-year-old girl was struck while trying to cross an Annapolis street Friday afternoon, police said.

The girl was attempting to cross Forest Drive, near Tyler Avenue, shortly before 3:30 p.m. when she was struck by a Jeep Cherokee heading east on Forest, said Sgt. Beth Nelson, spokeswoman with the Annapolis Police Department.

The girl was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma center for non life-threatening injuries, Nelson said.

Nelson said the driver had a green light and the accident appears to be pedestrian error, she said. The driver will not be charged, she said.
