HUDSON (KWWL) -

A crash on Hudson Road sends a 12-year-old girl to the hospital.

Emergency crews from Hudson were called to the area of Hudson Road and W Shaulis Road just after 4 p.m. Friday.

Holly Bergman of Hudson was crossing the street to get the mail when an SUV struck her.

Traffic was slowed in both directions while crash investigators worked.

The Iowa State Patrol says Bergman is expected to survive.

No word on if any charges will be filed against the driver, 62-year-old David Westley, and authorities say his vision was obstructed by another vehicle on the road at the time of the collision.
