A 7-year-old child was hospitalized Wednesday, Oct. 15, after being struck by a car across from Walker School in Rockford.
At approximately 7:25 a.m, a parent dropped off their 7- and 10- year- old children on Post Avenue near the school. The 7-year-old female crossed in in front of her parent’s minivan into the path of a moving Pontiac Aztec and dragged a short distance. The driver of the Aztec was an adult female who had just dropped her child off at the school. The victim was transported by the Rockford Fire Department to a local hospital with lower extremity injuries. The child was alert and conscious at the scene. The driver of the Aztec was not cited.
