Police reported that an 8-year-old boy was hit by a car in Bellevue Hill, Boston.
According to the authorities the accident occurred on Redgate Road just off of Lagrange Street in Bellevue Hill. It was reported that the boy was playing in the street when he was struck by a Lexus GS350 that was traveling northbound.
A witness says that the boy ran into the road when the car was driving by. The witness later retracted his statement saying that he only saw the crash after it had happened.
Officials reported that the 8-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital after having sustained several severe injuries after being struck by the vehicle.
The driver of the car voluntarily remained at the accident by his volition and was questioned by the Boston Police Department.
No charges have been filed and the identities of the parties involved were not released. Authorities are still investigating the incident.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “We are truly sorry to hear about this tragic incident. We wish this boy involved in this accident a speedy recovery and we hope that he does not suffer any long term damage or debilitating side effects. This kind of accident reminds us that we must always be careful near any roads even if we are not driving or riding in a vehicle. We urge the public to please get help as soon as possible and not to wait until they are in extreme pain to see a medical or legal professional.”
