HAVERHILL, Mass. - A toddler is in critical condition Tuesday after being struck by a car Monday night.
The child, in the hospital with life threatening injuries, was crossing the street with a man and woman, when the driver hit them.
“This guy came in and he said, ‘Call 911,’” said witness Amanda Busick.
The crash occurred in front of a pizza place in Haverhill. There are only sidewalks on one side of the street, and no crosswalks in this area.
According to police, the driver did stop, but they are still investigating the accident. Right now, it looks like the man may have had an expired license. The driver was not impaired at the time of the accident and he was not breaking the speed limit, according to police.
Police also say the man driving a 2008 Honda Civic may have had impaired visibility because of rain and darkness.
“My prayers are with his family and I hope God has him in his hands," the driver told Boston 25 News at the scene. “I have a son his age I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.”
The woman crossing the street with the child has injuries to her hand and the man is unharmed.
The investigation is ongoing.
