KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A 13-year-old boy headed to Millwood Middle school is recovering after he was struck by an east bound car as he tried to cross Cork Street at Konkle a little after 7 a.m. Thursday.  

The first Public Safety officers on the scene found the 8th grader conscious and alert but suffering lacerations to the head and other non-life threatening injuries.

He was loaded into an ambulance and taken to Bronson Emergency for treatment. No citations have been issued so far but the accident remains under investigation.
