Medical authorities in Solomon Islands say a six-year old girl hit by a Regional Mission vehicle is recovering and not in a critical condition.

The child was hit when she tried to cross a road.

An assistant commissioner of multinatinal police force, Robert Lehman, says the accident is being investigated.

"There is a full investigation that will involve the RSIP Traffic Branch as well - they will become part of that investigation - thankfully, as we understand, the child is not seriously injured, and perhaps she will be staying in hospital for a little bit longer for observation"
