COLTON, Calif. — Authorities say a 10-year-old boy playing in a yard with friends was struck by a car that then crashed into a Southern California home, causing major structural damage.
Police in the city of Colton say the car’s driver and the child were rushed to a hospital following the crash Tuesday evening.
The San Bernardino Sun reports (http://bit.ly/2sAcbd7 ) that firefighters on scene said the boy suffered what appeared to be multiple bone fractures.
Investigators will try to determine whether excess speed or other factors caused the driver to lose control.
Officials in the city east of Los Angeles are deciding whether the home is habitable or if it will be red-tagged.
An adjacent home also sustained minor damage.
