Boy hurt when driver loses control of car

An 8-year-old boy escaped with minor injuries after a man lost control of a vehicle, sending it toward a group of children who were playing near an apartment.

According to Kenosha Police, the 49-year-old man was driving through a parking lot behind an apartment building in the 4800 block of 36th Avenue at about 7:40 p.m. Wednesday.

When another car attempted to pull into the parking lot, the man corrected to avoid hitting that vehicle but hit a large pothole that caused him to lose control and accelerate toward a group of children playing outside.

The man swerved the vehicle to avoid the children but struck the 8-year-old with the side of the vehicle.

The boy was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries, scrapes and bruises.

Authorities indicated no tickets were issued.
