A 5-year-old boy riding a scooter was struck by a car in Bellflower Monday night, but appears to have escaped major injury, a sheriff's lieutenant said.
The boy was hit around 8:40 p.m. July 9 at the intersection of Alondra Boulevard and Clark Avenue, said Lt. Eric Lindblom of the Los Angeles County sheriff's Lakewood Station.
He was taken to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Lindblom said.
"He had a bump on his head," Lindblom said. "He wasn't bleeding, but since it was a head injury, they rolled him to Long Beach Memorial."
The driver of the vehicle that struck the boy stopped at the scene and was not cited or arrested, Lindblom said.
Lindblom did not know if the child was wearing a helmet when he was struck.
