Pedestrian Accident Injures Haverhill Boy

A 10-year-old Haverhill boy was injured recently when he was struck by a passing car while attempting to cross the street near his elementary school, according to a recent article from the Eagle-Tribune.

According to onlookers, the car that struck the boy was traveling down the street at or slightly above the local school zone speed limit of 20 miles per hour while the boy was trying to cross the same street in order to get to his school. He was not hit head-on by the vehicle, but the driver was unable to speed up or slow down enough to avoid clipping the boy with the side of the car. The boy was unable to get out of the car’s way in time to avoid the pedestrian accident.

Investigators say that the driver of the car, a compact Chevy Aveo, stopped immediately to check on the boy and contact medical help for him. Luckily, the boy was not seriously injured and is expected to make a full recovery. Police do not plan to charge the woman with any crime, but it is possible that negligence was a factor in the accident.
