An 11-year-old girl from Charleroi was taken by helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital after being struck by a car on her bicycle in Monessen.

At about 3 p.m. Sunday Layla Tomlin, 11, of Charleroi was riding south on Manown Street in Monessen when she went past a stop sign and entered the intersection at Indiana Avenue, said Monessen Police Capt. Ed Lyons.

Edward Villalobos, 50, of Monessen, drove into the intersection and hit the girl with his car.

Lyons said that according to witnesses, Villalobos was going the speed limit.

“The girl entered the intersection and he couldn't do anything,” Lyons said.

Tomlin was taken by helicopter to Pittsburgh because of injuries to her face and head. Lyons was not sure which hospital she was taken to.
