A 16-year-old girl was seriously hurt Wednesday night after being hit by a car driven by her 23-year-old sister in Pittsburgh’s Fineview neighborhood, a police spokeswoman said.
Police responded to the 1800 block of Belleau Drive shortly after 10 p.m.
According to police, the girl apparently jumped onto the hood of a moving vehicle, toppled off and was hit by the vehicle. Police identified the driver as Breyanna Jemee Fields.
The girl was taken to a hospital in critical condition and was later upgraded to serious condition.
Fields was arrested at the scene following an alleged altercation with police.
Fields faces four charges of aggravated assault against police officers. She is also facing charges of reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, driving under the influence of alcohol and traffic offenses.
No officers were hurt, the spokeswoman said.
