DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The 9-year-old boy hit by a car in Dayton on Tuesday is recovering at a local hospital.
Dayton Children’s Hospital says the boy is listed in fair condition.
He was hit by a car near James H. McGee Boulevard and W. First Street just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday night.
Police say the boy was unable to identify himself fully after the accident, giving only his first name and an incorrect age.
According to a police report, the boy’s mother said she looked for him for nearly two hours before being contacted by the hospital.
The woman said she didn’t call police because she thought she would find her boy. She told medical personnel that he’d wandered away from home before.
Police have asked the hospital to provide them updates on the boy’s condition.
