The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - — Pamela Lehman

Beth­le­hem Town­ship po­lice say a 3-year-old boy was struck by a ve­hi­cle Thurs­day morn­ing while in a crosswalk, but his in­juries don’t ap­pear to be life-threat­en­ing.

Po­lice say they were called to the ac­ci­dent that happened around 9:45 a.m. as the boy and a woman were cross­ing Free­mans­burg Av­enue at Wag­ner Drive.

Po­lice say the boy and the woman were in the crosswalk when a ve­hi­cle driven by a man go­ing south on Wag­ner turned left into the crosswalk.

Au­thor­i­ties say the driver, whose name was not re­leased, ap­par­ently failed to yield and hit the boy, who was ei­ther car­ry­ing or rid­ing a scooter.

The driver re­mained on scene and the crash re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
