Burien child struck by moving truck
A four-year-old Burien boy remains in stable but critical condition in the hospital after being struck by a moving truck on the afternoon of June 12th. The collision occurred on the west side of Highline High School at the 15500 block of 2nd Avenue South. According to Sgt. D.B. Gates, the child's received serious, but non-life threatening, injuries primarily to his head. Though an official statement has yet to be released, witnesses reported that the child was riding his bike behind a dumpster and turned out into the street leaving the driver of the truck little time to stop the vehicle before hitting him. The incident caused major traffic revisions to the S. 156th St. corridor and was the basis for multiple helicopters over the city for the evening. No updated information has been released as to the condition of the child.
