We've learned the child in the wreck is seven years-old, not nine as we previously reported.

Police say she's Breasha Wilson and was riding on the back of a scooter driven by 60 year-old James Windham.

Authorities tell us they were struck by a car, after blowing through a stop sign and neither were wearing helmets.

Windham is listed in fair condition. St. Mary's won't reveal how the child is doing.

The driver of the car is okay.
