A 16-year-old girl was injured in Murrieta early Thursday after she lost control of her bike and was hit by a car, authorities said.
The accident occurred at about 7 a.m. as the girl was riding her bicycle near the intersection of Clinton Keith and Greer roads, Murrieta fire Chief Matt Shobert confirmed.
"She was sent to the hospital with moderate injuries," Shobert said.
"She was wearing her helmet."
A witness who came upon the crash said: "There were multiple fire trucks and ambulances there."
Murrieta police Lt. Rob Firmes said the girl was riding her bike downhill on Greer Road when she lost control.

"She had mostly just abrasions, no broken bones and she is expected to be OK."
