A 6-year-old child riding a bicycle was rushed to the hospital Sunday evening after being struck by a vehicle exiting a private driveway, officials with the Victoria Police Department said.
The boy, whose name was not released, was riding his bicycle westbound in the 3200 block of East Airline Street about 8 p.m., when a white Jeep leaving the parking lot at Stratford Place Apartments struck him, officer Sterling Kocian said. The vehicle was driven by Jessica Jones, 26, of Victoria.
The child will be shown at fault because he was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk, Kocian said.
The Victoria police department investigation is ongoing.
