At the northern tip of Imperial Beach near the border of Coronado, a child of unknown age was hit by a car near Rainbow Drive and State Route 75 Tuesday evening, said Lt. Scott Amos.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department responded to the incident around 10:15 p.m.
"This was a child of unknown age, supposedly parents have been notified and it looks like they're going to be transporting the victim to UCSD [Medical Center]," Amos said.
Preliminary reports say the child suffered minor injuries, Amos said.
A portion of State Route 75 was shut down as a result of the accident.
