Posted: Updated:

Dash camera video from the patrol car of a Fort Bend County Deputy Constable that hit a 14 year old girl in Katy is being reviewed.

That girl is reportedly in stable condition at Hermann Memorial Hospital.

The girl was hit around 6:30 a.m. on Friday at the busy intersection of S. Fry Road and Gaston in Katy.

Fort Bend County Constable Rob Cook told FOX 26 that the deputy who hit the girl believed he had the right of way.

Texas Department of Public Safety investigators are leading the accident investigation. 

Katy ISD has confirmed the female was a student at Seven Lakes High School which was just a few blocks from the accident scene.

SKYFOX was over the scene and you could see books and the girls backpack as well as the crumpled remains of the bicycle.

Katy ISD did email out the following statement to parents:

Dear Seven Lakes High School Parent/Guardian,

This morning, before 7 a.m., we were informed by local law enforcement agencies that one of our freshmen students was struck by a vehicle at Gaston and Fry roads while riding her bicycle to school. This student was Life Flighted to a nearby hospital. Unfortunately, the student's condition is unknown at this time, however, please keep her in your thoughts today. We will share additional information should we learn more and should it be appropriate to share.
