    The relative safety of San Diego County appears to have prevented it from receiving the federal stimulus funds.

    The Gaithersburg Police Department confirms that a 14-year-old boy was struck by a police cruiser.

    The Associated Press reports that a teen was struck at about 3:15 p.m. as he crossed the intersection at Darnestown Road and Quince Orchard Road. Gaithersburg police said the teen was not in the crosswalk when he was struck.

    The teen was taken to a hospital for treatment for minor injuries. Police are still investigating the accident.
