WASHINGTON – A young boy was taken to the hospital today after being struck by a truck on the corner of 100 East and Telegraph just after 5 p.m.
Sgt. Dennis Bailey said the boy was nine or 10 years old, and received non life-threatening injuries.
Bailey said the boy was pushing his bike and looking down, and the pickup truck was turning right, but looking left for oncoming traffic. The truck accelerated into the street just as the boy stepped off the curb. The boy and his bike were hit, Bailey said, however Bailey said he believes only the bike went under the truck.
The boy was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center. No citations were issued to the driver as the accident is under investigation, Bailey said.
