7-year-old injured in collision involving Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian

Atlantic City police said a 7-year-old girl ran off the sidewalk and into the street — and straight into the side of a car being driven by Mayor Don Guardian on Saturday afternoon.

The mayor was driving west on Route 30 in front of the Highgate Apartments when the child and Guardian’s rear, passenger-side door connected. The mayor was not injured, but the girl sustained minor injuries and was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center for treatment.

According to police, an investigation was completed.

“Mayor Guardian was not issued a motor vehicle summons due to the accident being unavoidable,” police said in a statement.
