ATLANTIC CITY — Police say a 7-year-old girl suffered minor injuries when she ran into the street and collided with a car being driven by Mayor Don Guardian.

Police say Guardian was driving his city-issued vehicle when the child ran out into the street and struck his rear passenger door. It happened shortly before 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

She was taken to a local hospital. Guardian wasn't hurt.

Police say Guardian was not issued a motor vehicle summons because the accident was unavoidable.

Guardian, a Republican, is seeking reelection in November.
