Three year old girl is ok after being hit by vehicle

A child is doing fine after an incident yesterday that could have ended a lot worse. 

According to witnesses, around 3 pm yesterday a young girl was hit by a vehicle in Bluff Point on the North West Coastal Highway. 

Police say a mother and her child were waiting to cross the road when it appears the young child has run out onto the road. 

The driver of a passing minivan had seen the child and attempted to take evasive action swerving away. Police say the child hit the side of the minivan. 

The 3 year old girl only received minor injuries, but mother and child were taken to Geraldton Regional Hospital as a precaution.
