FAIRBANK, Iowa (AP) - A 4-year-old northeast Iowa girl was flown to an Iowa City hospital after she was struck by a pickup.

Authorities say Edna Raber, of rural Fairbank, ran into a street while playing with other children around 4 p.m. Wednesday. The truck was being driven by Michelle Kremer, of Fairbank.
 
The little girl was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein (OHL-wyne) and then flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
 
On Thursday a University of Iowa spokesman couldn't immediately verify whether Edna was a patient or, if so, provide an update on her condition.
