A 12-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle while on his way to school in Fairfield County.
The incident took place around 8:17 a.m., Tuesday, April 27, at the intersection of South Avenue and Farm Road in New Canaan, said New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro.
According to Ferraro, the boy, a 12-year-old boy, a student at Saxe Middle School, suffered minor injuries from the crash and was transported to Norwalk Hospital ER by NC EMS for treatment and further evaluation of his injuries.
The crash investigation is still ongoing.
An initial investigation found that a vehicle had a green traffic signal and was turning left onto South Avenue from Farm Road to travel northbound.
The boy had exited a vehicle that was stopped in traffic on South Avenue and entered the roadway to cross the street to get onto the sidewalk when he was struck, Ferraro said.
"The pedestrian did not cross South Avenue in a designated crosswalk at the time of the crash," Ferraro said.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing.
