On June 2, police received a report at 7:11 p.m. of a female lying in the roadway on Point San Pedro Road, near Manderly Road, according to police.
When officers arrived, they found the 17-year-old suffering major injuries.
The girl had been jogging west on the sidewalk of Point San Pedro Road when she went into the roadway to avoid a recently fallen tree in her path, according to police.
The driver of the minivan had been traveling west in the number two lane of Point San Pedro Road, when the vehicle struck the teen, police said.
