Unfortunately, some lessons are best taught with life experiences, but maybe a video can help educate others.
This youngster is very lucky after he was struck by a “Meal on Wheels” vehicle at the intersection of Albany Ave and Empire Blvd Monday afternoon. The child had attempted to dash across the street just after 4:30pm, but didn’t see the oncoming vehicle. He was struck head on by the vehicle and was thrown into the intersection.
Hatzalah rushed to the scene, but thankfully the boy was not seriously injured.
“Please tell your sons not to rush across any streets and especially on red light thinking they can get passed,” the Childs parents posted to social media. “My son obviously learned his lesson.”
