KENOSHA -- Kenosha police say a five-year-old boy was taken to the hospital by Flight for Life as a precaution Thursday, June 2nd after that child became trapped under a car that struck him.

It happened in the area of 55th Street and 49th Avenue -- near Curtis Strange School.

Police were called out to that area just before 2:00 p.m. for a report of a child under a car.

"They had access to a jack from the car itself, placed it under the vehicle and began lifting it so that the child was free. And the officer removed their vest and crawled underneath and got the child out," Matthew Haerter with the Kenosha Fire Department said.

The child didn't appear to have suffered life-threatening injuries.

A preliminary investigation has revealed the child darted into the roadway into the path of the moving vehicle. The female operator of the vehicle was cooperative -- and police said it does not appear that she was operating recklessly.
