Boy rushed to B.C. Children’s Hospital after hit by truck

A two-year-old Kelowna boy sustained serious injuries after a truck backing up in the 300 block of Farron Court struck him.

 

A two-year-old Kelowna boy has been transferred to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver after he was struck by a vehicle as it was backing out of a residence Thursday.

The young boy sustained serious injuries and was taken to Kelowna General Hospital after a truck backing up  in the 300 block of Farron Court struck him at around 5 p.m.

He was assessed at KGH and subsequently transferred to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.

Neither alcohol, nor speed were a factor in the incident.

The RCMP’s Central Okanagan Traffic Services, with assistance from the SouthEast District collision reconstructionist, continue to investigate the incident. Police are asking anyone who might have witnessed or have information regarding this collision to contact Const. Jetta Williams at 250-980-5353.
