Officials say child, 5, hit by car

Posted: Updated:

Officials said a young child was hit by a car late Wednesday afternoon.

The child was struck near East Chipman Road and Northeast Howard Street. Police said a white, Jeep Grand Cherokee was driving through the parking lot of an apartment complex when the driver said a child darted out in front of her and was hit.

The child is approximately 5-years-old. He was alert and conscious when he was taken from the scene and police said he suffered minor injuries.

This isn't the only incident involving children being hit by cars recently. In September, two girls were rushed to the hospital with serious injuries after they were hit by an SUV while out playing in Paola, KS. One of the girls later died.
