Porterville boy hospitalized after hit by car

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Porterville police say a 12-year-old boy has life threatening injuries after he was hit by a car Saturday.

Officers rushed to North Roche St. near Putnam Ave. just after 2 p.m. Police said the young victim was playing catch when he ran out into the street in front of a car.

The 44-year-old driver could not stop in time and hit the child. The boy was then flown to a Fresno area hospital. The driver was not hurt, and investigators say alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
