Ohio personal injury lawyer alerts- child injured in traffic accident near Amanda Elementary School.

Middletown, OH—A 7-year-old child was injured after being struck by a vehicle on Monday, February 1, 2010. The incident reportedly occurred in the 1400 block of Oxford State Road, according to information provided by WLWT.com.

Middletown Division of Police officials reportedly stated the child “darted between two vehicles” and was subsequently struck by a car. The vehicle, driven by Kayla Weber, was allegedly traveling at a slow rate of speed when the traffic accident occurred. Upon being hit by the automobile, the unidentified child was reported unconscious.

Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel seemingly responded to the scene to transport the injured child, who reportedly gained consciousness upon receiving preliminary treatment, to Children’s Hospital in Dayton, Ohio via medical helicopter. Accident investigators did not immediately disclose the Amanda Elementary School student’s condition. It was also unknown whether the driver of the vehicle sustained any injuries in the incident, though it is unlikely since there was only minor damage to her vehicle.

Deputies also reported that the incident occurred less than 10 minutes after students were released from school for the day. A crosswalk with a crossing guard is located in front of the elementary school though officers noted that many children do not use it. Two traffic safety assemblies will be conducted at the school in response to the traffic crash.
