    A teenage girl was injured Thursday night when she was struck by a car while crossing North Main Street in Rutland, according to city police.

    Police didn’t release the name of the girl , who was crossing the four-lane road between Kendall and Roberts avenues at about 9:45 p.m. But police said she was taken by ambulance to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.

    Alexander Salgo, the driver of the Subaru sedan that struck her in the northbound lane stopped after the crash and waited for police.

    Police said Salgo did not consume any alcohol Thursday night , but the teenager who was struck and two youths with her had been drinking.

    One of the young men, Christopher Wright, was also under a abuse-prevention order to have no contact with the girl who was injured. Wright was arrested and jailed on $10,000 bail for allegedly violating the order. He is expected to be arraigned today.

    Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact Officer Jennifer Czachor at 773-1820.
