Car hits child; 2-year-old suffers injuries

A 2-year-old boy was injured Sunday when he ran out in front of a gold car driving eastbound on Cardinal Street on Sunday.

The boy was transported to DeTar Hospital Navarro for what appeared to be minor cuts to his left arm and head, said Victoria Police Officer Dakota McCarthy. The car swerved, attempting to miss the child, and came into contact with the boy on the front driver's side.

The driver of the gold car was Eric Hill, 25, of Victoria. The 2-year-old's name was not available Sunday evening.

No citations were issued. Officers responded to the call in the 2600 block of Cardinal Street at 7:44 p.m.
