Boy, 5, injured after running into traffic

HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A five-year-old boy was hospitalized in stable condition after running into a moving car Friday afternoon.

The accident happened shortly before 5 p.m. on West Lakewood Blvd. west of Aniline Ave.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says a westbound driver saw one child run across the street in front of her and slowed down. As she kept driving slowly, another child -- the boy -- ran from the roadside and into her vehicle.

Authorities say the driver had the right-of-way. Witnesses say the boy was waiting to join other kids across the street and thought traffic was clear.
