ATLANTA, GA – According to an online news report at ajc.com, a fourteen-year-old boy was seriously injured in an accident that occurred on the 2400 block of Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in the morning hours, per the Atlanta police.
The white Chevrolet Camaro that struck the boy stayed at the scene and the driver is cooperating with investigators, per a captain of the Atlanta Police Department. An eleven-year-old boy in the Camaro sustained a minor injury to his finger and was treated at the scene of the accident. According to the captain, the accident is still under investigation due to conflicting witness statements.
Law enforcement believes that the 14-year-old was waiting for a school bus to pick him up at the time he was struck by the Camaro.
Per the captain, “[t]here are a lot of children out here, obviously, waiting for the bus, so people just need to be careful driving down through here and slow down.”
One woman witnessed the accident and rendered aid to the victim. She noted to reporters that “[i]t brought tears to m[y] eyes for that poor baby. I felt like a mother at that point. I couldn’t do nothing but go check his pulse and hold him.”
There are no further details on the accident at this time. The crash remains under investigation by the local police. There is no word as to the current status of the injury victim.
