10-Year-Old Struck by a Car on Kansas Ave.
SAN ANGELO, TX — A 10-year-old child was playing in the street and ran out in front of a moving red Ford. He was struck in the 1700 block of Kansas Ave. early this evening.
Police and an ambulance were dispatched to the scene. The child suffered what appeared to be a head injury, a laceration to the head, and was transported to an area hospital for observation. According to witnesses at the scene, the child was talking and responsive.
“Our kids play out here all the time, and we tell them to watch for traffic,” a neighbor said. The police said the Ford was traveling well below the posted speed limit according to their investigation.
Because the incident involved a juvenile with injuries, a police traffic investigator will conduct an investigation. No citations were issued.
