The child was dropped off by automobile on the 3300 block of Vogel St. While he attempted to cross the street, a vehicle traveling on Vogel struck him in the leg area with the front right side of the vehicle. The car partially ran over the teen’s foot. He was taken to a local hospital by a private auto. His injuries were not life-threatening.
