A reported 9-year-old girl who was struck by an unmarked police car while riding a bicycle on Saturday night in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood has been released from the hospital.

About 8:40 p.m., an unmarked squad car struck a girl on a bicycle in an alley in the 1900 block of South Harding Avenue, said police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien.

Shavon Benson was released from Mount Sinai Hospital Sunday, a hospital spokeswoman said. The girl was initially taken to the hospital in “stable” condition, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The circumstances surrounding the accident remain under investigation and there were no citations early Monday, Greer said.
