A 9-year-old boy who was rushed to the hospital after being hit by a vehicle in Hays Wednesday morning has been upgraded to stable condition.
According to police, the incident was reported about 8:40 a.m. near the intersection of Mifflin Road and Hillburn Street.
Pittsburgh paramedics took the boy, 9, to Children's Hospital, EMS Acting Chief Mark Bocian said.
The boy, whose name hasn’t been released, had head trauma, abdominal injuries and a broken leg, Bocian said. As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the boy had been upgraded to stable condition.
Paramedics also were evaluating the driver, who was shaken up by the incident.
The boy’s friend told Channel 11’s Brittny McGraw that they were crossing the street to get to a bus stop when the boy was hit.
“I was thinking in my mind, ‘Don’t cross the street,’” the boy’s friend said.
The incident remains under investigation, and police haven’t said if any charges will be filed.
