Boy, 12, struck by vehicle near Wheeling High School
A 12-year-old boy is in stable condition after he was struck by a vehicle near Wheeling High School on Tuesday, police said.
The boy was in a crosswalk at the intersection of Hintz Road and Sherwood Drive when a westbound vehicle driven by a 17-year-old struck him about 3:20 p.m., Wheeling Deputy Chief Todd Wolff said Wednesday.
The boy was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Wolff said.
The crash is under investigation by the police department's major crash unit, and no charges or citations against the driver have been filed, Wolff said.
There is a crosswalk sign but no stop sign at that location.
