Delaware State Police say a 12-year-old ATV passenger was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash with a truck. Police say the crash happened Monday morning when three juveniles riding a Honda Recon ATV pulled out of a private driveway onto Shingle Point Road in Georgetown. A southbound truck pulling a trailer moved into the northbound lane to avoid the ATV, but ended up striking the rear of the ATV. The rear passenger on the ATV, a 12-year-old girl, was ejected and landed on the pavement. Police say the driver of the truck stopped to check on the ATV’s occupants of the ATV, then left. The girl was flown to a hospital in critical condition.
