Police cited a 15-year-old girl Tuesday evening with a felony charge of criminal endangerment for striking a fellow Capital High School student with her car in the school’s parking lot last week.
Witnesses said the Helena girl intentionally drove her 1998 Buick LeSabre directly at an 18-year-old East Helena boy, striking and injuring him last Thursday afternoon, according to Helena Police Lt. Steve Hagen.
The boy was transported by ambulance to St. Peter’s Hospital. The extent of his injuries has not been released.
Hagen said investigators haven’t determined whether the girl intended to hit the boy or just scare him.
The girl, whose name has not been released because she’s a juvenile, was cited, and the case will be referred to juvenile probation, Hagen said.
