    The incident happened just after 6 p.m. on Bordelon Street. The child, who police say is between seven and eight years old, was riding a skateboard on the street on his belly when a neighbor accidentally hit the child with his pickup truck.

    The child sustained a broken leg and was taken to Rady Children’s Hospital. Police say the child was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

    Police say the driver, who lives in the same neighborhood as the child, remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities.
