A child was taken to the hospital with leg injuries after he ran into the street and was hit by a car, witnesses say.
A boy, possibly heading home from King-Chavez Preparatory Academy, walked or darted into the street just after 3 p.m. in the 3000 block of Island Avenue, a witness told NBC 7.
Not seeing the child, the driver in a blue car struck him, throwing him several feet. Witnesses believe the driver was going the speed limit.
The boy was taken to the hospital for major leg injuries, but he is expected to survive.
San Diego Police traffic investigators are at the scene to determine what happened.
