According to police, the child was walking with another boy.  They tried to cross to the west side of Sheridan as the driver was turning left from Latimer to Sheridan.

The child suffered minor leg injuries and was taken to a Tulsa hospital.

T-Town a 9 yr old is fully capable of walking to school. Crossing at the light = crosswalk roulette for pedestrians after right turn on red after stop :-/ cause the driver is trying to see if they can beat the next thing coming not taking the time to are if a pedestrian is crossing. It is much safer to cross in the middle of the block. Then you can easily see what is coming.

The kid was probably not crossing at the corner or the light & most likely, given that lcation, they werent really all that visible. The ticket they incurred was probably no insurance. My guess....... As for walking to school at 9. Its pathetic we have to shelter our children and cant just let them be kids.

How could they be ticketed but NOT regarding the accident. Isn't hitting a child ticket-able offense?
