A girl was struck by a vehicle Friday afternoon near the New Castle-Mount Kisco border. The incident took place in New Castle, around the intersection of Millwood Road (Route 133) and Courtmel Road, New Castle police confirmed.
Police responded at around 1:22 p.m. and the girl was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, which indicates that serious injury may have been involved because treats more minor problems.
Police could not say more about the case. However, The Journal News reports that the girl was hurt while she tried crossing the road to get lemonade at a nearby home, 614 Millwood Rd. The neighborhood lemonade stand was advertised; a flyer for it, on a pole further up Courtmel, was still up hours later.
Adam Goldenberg, who lives at the house, told the paper that the lemonade stand was intended to be something fun to do for summer.
The road has a history of traffic issues, Goldenberg told The Journal News.
“It happens all the time. We hear the crashes all the time,” he told the paper. “The left turn’s horrible. I know people who make a right to turn around and go left.”
Goldenberg could not be reached for comment. A woman at the residence, who explained he wasn't there, did not want to comment.
Courtmel is practically a stone's throw away from Mount Kisco's western border, and is nearly across the street from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's residence. He lives on Bittersweet Lane, according to election records.
The neighborhood falls within Mount Kisco's fire district; the fire department was at the scene, New Castle police said. Mount Kisco's volunteer ambulance corps also responded, first responder officials said.
