Child hospitalized after being hit by car in Pinellas Park

PINELLAS PARK — A young child was taken to the hospital Monday morning after being hit by a car, troopers said

The child, who was not identified, was been taken to All Children's Hospital with "scrapes and bruises" after being hit by a Dodge Intrepid near the intersection of 34th Street and 64th Avenue N, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers arrived on scene at about 7:15 a.m.

The child's mother and two other children may have also been hit by the car, a Dodge Intrepid, but they were not hospitalized, officials said.

Following the collision, an empty stroller stood abandoned at the scene. It was not immediately clear whether the mother and children were in the street, on the sidewalk or in a crosswalk when they were hit.

No further information was immediately available.
