By Sergeant Santiago Castillo, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau
On Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 2:05 p.m., Antioch Police received a call of a vehicle versus pedestrian accident on A Street at W 15th Street. Callers indicated a young child was hit by a car at that location and was complaining of head and neck pain.
The 10-year-old male juvenile was conscious and alert at the scene, but was airlifted to Oakland Children’s Hospital as a precaution and is expected to recover.
The driver of the vehicle, a 75-year-old Pittsburg resident, remained on scene and was cooperative with the investigation. The preliminary investigation revealed that the juvenile attempted to run across A Street in the path of the vehicle, which subsequently struck him. It does not appear speed, alcohol or drugs were a factor in this incident.
