GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – Garner police said a 2-year-old boy suffered life-threatening injuries when he was hit by a car on Christmas night.
The incident was reported just before 10:10 p.m. Saturday in the 1600 block of Woodland Road, which connects Timber Drive and Vandora Springs Road, according to police.
Police did not say if the boy was hit while in a driveway or in the road.
Police blocked off the road near Hillbrook Court Saturday night after the incident. A Toyota Prius was seen stopped in the street behind the area blocked by police. Debris could also be seen in the road.
Woodland Road has a 35 mph speed limit and is lined by homes.
The child was taken to WakeMed in Raleigh for treatment, police said.
The boy was later transferred to UNC Hospital where he is listed in critical condition, Garner police said Sunday.
Police said that a crash reconstruction team and investigators responded to the scene Saturday night.
“This incident is still under investigation and it’s too early to determine if charges are warranted,” said Garner police Capt. Mike McIver.
