Salina, N.Y. – A six-year-old is recovering at the hospital after she was hit by a car earlier in the afternoon in the Town of Salina.
Onondaga County Sheriff's Deputies say that Timothy Barlow was driving on Teall Ave, near Short Street, when he noticed a group of children lingering on the shoulder of the road. That's when the six-year-old darted in front of his car as she tried to cross the street. Barlow slammed on the brakes, but did end up hitting the girl.
