COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A 6-year-old child was hurt when a motorcyclist crashed his bike Saturday afternoon.

Police say the little girl was on the motorcycle sitting in front of the rider when the man lost control and crashed into a garage on Brady Boulevard. The motorcyclist left the scene -- and the child -- before police arrived. A lieutenant tells 11 News the motorcyclist was giving relatives rides around the block, so other family members were nearby and able tend to the child. The little girl was transported to the hospital and is expected to be OK.

The rider hasn't been charged yet, but could face reckless endangerment charges, the lieutenant said.

Police have not said what the relationship is between the rider and the child, only that they are relatives.
