  1. An elderly couple were in a car at the scene and being questioned by police. Looked to be the vehicle that struck the kid. Prayers for him๐Ÿ™

  2. I came upon the accident right after it happened. The child went into the windshield (windshield was severely damaged). Skateboard was on the ground broken in half. Child must have been transported at that point. Driver was very elderly. Iโ€™m so heartbroken for the family. My prayers are with them.

  3. This is the third incident of this kind this week. Maybe people need to adjust to the return of kids in school.

  4. Hope he recovers quick.He was skateboarding to school not in traffic!.๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

  5. I hope the hospital gives the community an update on the condition of the15 year old boy that was badly injured.
