A 12-year-old boy was struck by a car as he walked to Hamilton Middle School this morning.
According to witnesses quoted by KOMO and KING 5, the boy was in the crosswalk at N 40th St and Wallingford Ave when a Honda Civic ran a red light and struck him. The boy boy somersaulted over the hood and hit the windshield.
He was taken to the hospital, but was conscious and talking and is expected to recover.
School is in session again. Please be careful out there: one thoughtless moment or hurried commute could change a lot of lives forever.
