Child Injured After Being Struck By Car
The youth was flown to the hospital following the afternoon crash.
A 6-year-old child sustained serious injuries after being hit by a car in the 1100 block of Horsham Road Tuesday, shortly after school let out.
Horsham Police responded to the pedestrian crash at 3:39 p.m. A medical helicopter landing zone was set up near the crash site shortly after and the victim was flown to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Police said a preliminary investigation revealed that a 2011 Toyota Rav-4 was traveling west on Horsham Road and struck the child in the roadway. The operator immediately stopped at the scene and is cooperating with police.
Any witnesses to this crash are asked to contact Detective Adam Dunning of the Horsham Township Police Department at 215-643-8284.
