AUBURNDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 5-year-old central Florida girl was critically injured when he was hit by an SUV.

Auburndale police say Jasiro Santos remained in critical condition Thursday after a surgery at a Tampa hospital.

Police say the girl was riding her bicycle Wednesday afternoon when the SUV hit her. Investigators say the 35-year-old woman driving the SUV appeared to be impaired during the collision.

The driver has not been charged. Officers took blood samples, but it could take months before toxicology results are returned.
