— An 11-year-old girl was injured at Cliffdale and Bunce roads Tuesday morning, Cumberland County officials said.

The child, whose name they did not disclose, was transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. Her condition was not available Tuesday afternoon.

It is believed the girl walked into the side of a moving vehicle while attempting to cross Cliffdale Road to get to Bunce Road, authorities said.

Police said the driver of the truck, Robin R. Silva of 1620 Van Buren Ave., will not be charged.

    Shouldn't the headline read like this "child injured on a Fayettville street"?

    I live not too far from there and I have seen alot of people, running accross this busy street. Not just the Bunce intersection, Cliffdale rd. I had to slam on brakes before for some of a group of kids. I am not saying that is what happened here. People need to be more careful. Praying for her recovery.

    This headline needs to be changed.
    I thought Fayetteville Street in Raleigh?
    Then when I was reading it, I was like this isn't Fayetteville Street, why would they put that.
    Oh, a street IN Fayetteville.
