Update: 7:55 p.m.
The 15-year-old girl was running on Long Lots Road with a group of five other female cross-country teammates and their coach when she was struck by a minivan, according to Westport Police Sergeant Richard Frazier.
The runner was transported to Norwalk Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being treated by Westport police and Westport EMS, Fraizer said.
"The group of six girls and their coach were running eastbound on the shoulder of the westbound lanes as required," Frazier said, adding that the incident is still under investigation. "Alcohol and speed were not contributing factors in this accident."
The driver of the minivan stopped at the scene and no one else was injured, Fraizer said. Additional school personnel responded to the accident for assistance, while bystanders and witnesses were at the scene assisting with the investigation, he said.
