A 15-year-old girl from Templeton was injured after being hit by a car Thursday night.

It happened around 7 p.m. on Las Tablas Road near Hawley Street.

The California Highway Patrol says the teen was walking south across Las Tablas when she was hit by a vehicle heading westbound on the road.

The pedestrian was taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center for treatment of major injuries, according to CHP.

Officers say the 38-year-old female driver from Templeton remained at the scene and add that while the crash investigation is still pending, drugs or alcohol are not suspected at this time.

A gofundme account created for the girl's family had brought in more than $34,000 just 10 hours after it was created.

No other information was immediately available.
