CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A five-year-old boy in being treated for non-life-threatening injuries after running in front of a moving car and being struck on Nations Ford Road at Wiletta Drive Thursday evening.
Medics responded to reports around 6:15 p.m. of a crash that had occurred involving a vehicle who had struck a child.
The boy was not in a crosswalk when he was struck, and medics transported him to Carolina Medical Center to be treated for injuries initially called serious, but later confirmed to not be life-threatening.
Alcohol was not a factor and there were no charges for the driver in reference to the cause of the accident. However, the driver did have a suspended license and he was arrested on that charge.
