CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A 10-year-old girl in Clarksville is recovering she was hit by a vehicle while riding a bike.

On Saturday, October 2, Kiley Hernandez was riding her bike with her sister and a friend around the neighborhood when a red SUV sideswiped Kiley.

The driver left her lying in the street on Sikorsky Lane and Raven Road. Her father, Christopher Hernandez, rushed her to the hospital.

"Just seeing her cry and to see her scruffed up, I didn't know if they ran her leg over or how severe it was," said Hernandez.

The family said Kiley suffered from a concussion and brain bleeding.

She is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks.
