(WBIR) Crews took an 11-year-old girl to the hospital Friday morning after she ran out into the road and was hit by a truck.

A truck hit the girl on the 2100 block of Keith Avenue just before 7:30 a.m.

She told police she ran out into the road because a dog jumped out and scared her. The girl went to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for some cuts on her head. Police said her injuries were non-life threatening.

Knoxville police said at this time there will be no charges filed against the truck's driver.
