    Boy Struck, Critically Injured in Temple Hills

    Police say a 3-year-old was struck and critically injured in Prince George's County Monday afternoon. News4's Shomari Stone reports. (Published Monday, Dec. 22, 2014)

    A 3-year-old boy who was freed from underneath a car by a group of good Samaritans remains in critical condition Tuesday.

    The boy, who was with his parents, was struck and pinned beneath the car just before 6 p.m. at the usually busy intersection of St. Barnabas Road and Stamp Road in Temple Hills. Witnesses rushed in to help lift the car off the boy. He was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

    It appeared as though he did not use a crosswalk.

    "It is sad, and I have to wonder... a small child crossing over where there's no crosswalk..." witness Umeka Coleman said.

    The driver who struck the child remained on scene.

    "To any pedestrians, when you have any heavy traffic-heavy area as this, always stay in the crosswalk, always obey traffic signals," Prince George's Co. Corp. Nicole Hubbard said.
