A 9-year-old girl suffered a broken femur Monday night in Glendale after she ran into traffic and was struck by a passing vehicle, police said.

The girl, whose name was not released because she is a minor, was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where she was treated for the bone fracture, which is not life-threatening, said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

She ran in between parked cars and into traffic about 6 p.m. in the 1100 block of North Columbus Avenue, where a motorist struck her, Lorenz said.

The motorist remained at the scene while paramedics treated the girl, Lorenz said.
