Child injured in downtown accident

A young boy was taken to the hospital tonight after being struck by a pickup truck in the intersection of Sprague Avenue and Lincoln Street.

Witness Cindy Curtis said she and her husband were crossing Sprague around 7 p.m. when she heard the northbound vehicle strike the boy and saw him thrown across the intersection. Curtis, a nurse, attended the boy until paramedics arrived. The boy told her he was 9 years old “and scared,” Curtis said.

Witnesses said the boy crossed the intersection against a red light and the driver of the pickup was not driving recklessly. Witnesses said the boy was with a group of people dressed in traditional Indian regalia handing out fliers for Coyote and Friends, a performance at the nearby Bing Crosby Theater sponsored by the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture’s American Indian Cultural Council.
