Police believe the girl was crossing the street mid-block when she was hit by a 59-year-old driver who had just dropped off his daughter at the school.
The 8-year-old girl was taken to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The 59-year-old driver was arrested for driving on a suspended license. Police said he may face additional charges.
