A 13-year-old Dublin boy was struck by a vehicle while he was in the crosswalk of Amador Valley Boulevard near Wildwood Drive.
“About 4:20 p.m., the boy was walking southbound in the crosswalk when he was hit by a vehicle,” said Dublin Police Lt. Steve Brown. “The boy was possibly blocked from the view of the driver who struck him due to another vehicle stopped in the left turn lane. The driver stopped and stayed at the scene.”
Brown says a witness from a nearby apartment complex came to the boy’s aid.
The boy was taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Oakland. The extent of his injuries is unknown.
“The boy’s parents have been notified,” said Brown.
The collision is being investigated by Dublin Police Services.
