Jul. 17—A Lewiston woman is not expected to face charges after a 4-year-old girl was hit by her car on Knox Street Thursday evening.

Around 5:20 p.m., officers responded to a report of a child hit by a car around 62 Knox St. near the corner of Maple Street, the Lewiston Sun Journal reported.

The girl was brought to Central Maine Medical Center with a leg injury, but was released.
