Teen hit by vehicle on Pembina

  • Print

A 13-year-old boy was rushed to hospital after being hit by a vehicle near the intersection of Pembina Highway and Killarney Avenue.

The accident, which occurred at about 3 p.m. as schools let out, was witnessed by the victim’s brother, who borrowed a cellphone to call their mother and was then comforted by a crowd of bystanders as emergency workers attended to the victim.

One observer said she was waiting at a red light to turn north on Pembina when she hear a "huge bang."

"I looked up and all I saw was the boy flying and then spinning on the ground like a turtle on his back," said the woman, who asked that her name not be used.

The boy appeared to be moving around on the ground, trying to get in the most comfortable position after he had been struck.

"I saw a scratch on his right cheek but there was no blood or anything else," she said.

The boy was taken to Children’s Hospital. Police continue to investigate.
