An ambulance transported a 12-year-old boy to the hospital following an accident on Duval Road involving a four-wheeler, police report.
A boy was in critical condition after sustaining internal injuries, EMS reported. He was allegedly a passenger of a four-wheeler, driven by a 26-year-old male. The four-wheeler was rear-ended by a Nissan pickup truck.
The report affirmed that the boy’s identity won’t be released until the immediate family has been notified of this accident.
Authorities responded to the scene near the 11911 block of Duval Road to investigate the accident. The boy had been taken by a privately owned vehicle to a nearby Medical Center before the EMS unit met them and transported the boy the rest of the way.
Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a unfortunate accident that led to a boy sustaining injuries. When motorists are distracted, reckless or speeding they put the lives of others at risk. When a negligent driver causes a crash, he or she could be held accountable for the accident. An injured victim should seek out an experienced accident attorney to help with the collection of compensation for medical care, losses and damages.”
