A young child was hit by a pickup truck Monday morning as he crossed Wilkinson Boulevard.
Frankfort Police Capt. Robert Warfel said 84-year-old James Polsgrove of Frankfort was driving along Wilkinson Boulevard when the first-grader darted in front of his vehicle. The boy was headed from an apartment complex to River View Park, Warfel said.
The boy sustained injuries to his head and face, but was conscious and talking as an ambulance transported him to Frankfort Regional Medical Center, Warfel said.
Nearby construction workers told police officers Polsgrove was driving at a safe speed at the time of the accident. The incident is still under investigation.
That area of Wilkinson Boulevard is currently one lane in each direction, as construction work continues to replace aging concrete on the roadway.
