Officials tell ABC 36 that a girl was hit by a car and then pinned to a tree on Auburn Drive at 4:22 Wednesday evening.

The construction reconstruction unit is on scene.

Officials say the driver of the car was tuning left onto Auburn Dr. from Eastland Parkway when the girl was struck.

She was taken to UK Hospital with life threatening injuries.

Police say the driver of the vehicle claims the sun was in her eyes as she turned and did not see the girl crossing the street.

The driver is cooperating with police.

Eastland Parkway will remain closed at the intersection with Auburn Dr. and Auburn Court until the accident reconstruction is complete.  Eastland Parkway is also blocked at Raleigh Rd.

ABC 36 will bring you more information when it becomes available.
