A police officer in Aurora hit a 9-year-old child with a squad car during Friday night’s thunderstorm.
About 7 p.m., the officer was driving north on Ohio Street near Front Street when two children, ages 7 and 9, tried to run across Ohio as the officer was driving, according to Aurora police.
The 9-year-old was hit and taken to Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora for “possible internal injuries,” police said.
The child’s condition and gender were not immediately known.
The investigation remains ongoing, though police do not believe speed was a factor.
