A 15-year-old girl walking across Highway 1 on Tuesday morning in Moss Beach was hit by a motorcycle and airlifted to Stanford Hospital, the California State Highway Patrol reported.
Moss Beach resident Mark Kowart, 48, was riding his Suzuki motorcycle south on Highway 1 at 6:50 a.m. when he hit the girl walking eastbound across the highway at Virginia St., CHP Public Information Officer Scott Niemeth said.
The girl was on her way to school when she was struck by the motorcycle, according to Niemeth. She was airlifted to Stanford Hospital and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
"She has pain, but no broken bones," Niemeth said.
According to Niemeth, there is no report of Kowart being injured or seeking medical assistance after the accident.
Close to a month ago on Dec. 9, Moss Beach resident Cathy Silva was near the same intersection on Highway 1. Silva was found lying on the shoulder of the highway in front of El Gran Amigo Taqueria.
Authorities temporarily closed Highway 1 to respond to Tuesday morning's incident.
