BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- A 14-month old boy is recovering from bumps and bruises at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo after he was struck by a pick-up truck near the playground at Bailey Park in Battle Creek.
The toddler apparently wandered in front of the pick-up just as the driver was leaving. He could not see the child, who was struck and knocked over.
A female relative yelled at the driver, who hit the brakes before the truck ran the boy over.
He was taken to the E.R. at Bronson Battle Creek and transferred to the hospital in Kalamazoo for observation as a precaution.
No word if the driver was cited.
