Student struck by vehicle in early-morning collision
Police said an 11-year-old student suffered no visible injuries after being struck by a vehicle early Tuesday morning. The child, who was not identified, was transported to Children’s Hospital in Oakland out of “an abundance of caution,” Alameda Police Lt. Sean Lynch said.
Lynch said that the boy was struck at 7:58 a.m. Tuesday as he rode his bike across the street in front of the Academy of Alameda Middle School at 401 Pacific Avenue. He said the driver who had slowed in front of the school believed a civilian was waving him through and that the driver struck the boy.
Lynch said the boy got up after being struck by the car but was taken by paramedics to Children’s. He said the boy complained of pain but had no visible injuries.
