Teen critically injured in New Year's Day accident

A 14-year-old girl is in critical condition after being hit by a car on New Year's Day.

It happened in Lyndhurst on Cedar Road just west of Richmond around 6PM.

Police say Paige Alexis Allen of South Euclid was with a group of friends. They were crossing from the southside of Cedar to the northside when Paige was struck.

Paige was transported to Hillcrest and then to Rainbow. She suffered a fractured skull and broken hip.

There are no charges at this time for the driver. It appears the teens were not in a crosswalk when the accident occurred.

Lyndhurst police say the accident remains under investigation.
