(KMOV) – A 12-year-old boy who was hit by a car and thrown into the air Tuesday night is expected to be okay.
Witnesses say he flipped three times before hitting the ground. They say the boy and a friend were waiting for a stoplight in north St. Louis County when one of them decided to cross the street.
An oncoming car with a green light then struck the 12-year-old, sending him into the air.
Police say the boy did suffer injuries, but did not speak on the severity of the injuries. They also say the driver will not face charges because it appears that the child walked out in the street when he shouldn’t have been crossing.
