A 13-year-old girl is in critical condition after being hit by a car on Friday evening while riding her bike in Bethesda.

According to a Montgomery County Police press release, on Nov. 8, around 5:45 p.m. the teen was riding her bicycle in the crosswalk of northbound Old Georgetown Road at the entrance ramp on the inner loop of I-495 when she was hit by a car driven by 83-year-old Nanak Singh Manku of McLean, Virginia.
