A 10-year old girl is recovering after deputies say she was hit by a car in the town of Torrey in Yates County.

It happened Wednesday afternoon on State Route 54.

Investigators say the 20-year-old driver tried to avoid the girl but high winds, drifting snow, and slush caused the driver to lose control and hit Rachel Martin of Penn Yan.

She was taken to the hospital but is expected to be okay.

No tickets were issued to the driver.
