Longview Child Hit By Car

A child ran into traffic and was hit by a car. It happened last night around 6:20 p.m. on the 800th Block of Travis Street in Longview. That's on the South side of Longview. Accident investigators say the little boy was in the yard with a group of people at the time. The 2-year-old then ran across the road. The child was airlifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas. The driver, 19-year-old Jesus Andrade of Longview was arrested on outstanding warrants, not for the accident. He was cited for not having a driver's license, and car insurance. Longview Police say Andrade was not exceeding the speed limit. At last check, the 2-year-old boy was listed in critical condition.
