State Police say the child who was hit by a car on County Line Road in Pinegrove Township on Wednesday afternoon is a four year-old boy.
Troopers did not release the child’s identity, but did confirm that he has been hospitalized in Pittsburgh. The boy’s injuries were described as “moderate.”
Police say the boy apparently wanted to help an adult retrieve mail from a roadside mailbox, and he ran into the path of a car driven by a Venus woman. First-responders rushed to the scene of the incident just before 4:00 PM Wednesday.
