Six-year-old child darts into traffic after a Frisbee and is struck by a car in Mount Pleasant
MOUNT PLEASANT (WITI) — Mount Pleasant police say a child was struck by a car and injured on Monday afternoon, September 29th.
It happened shortly before 3:00 p.m. in the 2100 block of Howe Street in the Village of Mount Pleasant.
Officials determined a 22-year-old Racine woman was headed northbound on Howe Street when a six-year-old child darted out into traffic from between two parked vehicles in order to retrieve a Frisbee.
Mount Pleasant police say the child was conscious at the scene — and taken to the hospital with a leg injury. The child is expected to survive.
Police say the driver of the vehicle that struck the child cooperated at the scene. That driver wasn’t injured — but her vehicle sustained minor damage.
Police say alcohol wasn’t a factor in this incident, and no one else was injured.
