A car struck an elementary school-aged boy on an El Cajon street late Thursday afternoon, authorities reported.
The small silver sedan hit the child in the 900 block of Peach Avenue shortly before 4 p.m., city spokeswoman Monica Zech said.
Medics took the boy, believed to be 7 or 8 years old, to Rady Children’s Hospital. The severity of his injuries was not immediately clear.
The motorist pulled over following the accident and was cooperating with police.
Officers closed a block-long stretch of the street to allow investigators to gather evidence, Zech said.
