At about 4:09 p.m., deputies with the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to the 2700 block of McDaniel Road for the re­port of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle crash. In­ves­ti­ga­tion showed the driver of a Nis­san Al­tima, a 28-yearold woman, was head­ing south on McDaniel Road when she struck the boy who was cross­ing the street on his bi­cy­cle in a des­ig­nated cross­walk. The child

suf­fered se­vere in­juries and was flown to Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal. The child, who was wear­ing a hel­met, was in the com­pany of his mother and two friends when he was struck. The cross­walk is clearly marked by road no­ti­fi­ca­tion mark­ings and street signs. It is not im­me­di­ately clear how the crash oc­curred, but the driver re­mained on the scene.
