Car Hits Boy in Busy Lakeside Parking Lot

A 10-year old boy in Mineola is struck by a car Saturday while walking through a crowded, lake-side parking lot.

The accident happened around 4:30 p.m. in a parking lot on the southwest side of Lake Halbrook. Investigators say an 18-year old driver hit a young boy when rounding a corner. The child was transported to East Texas Medical Center in Tyler and treated for minor head lacerations.

Investigators say the incident was purely accidental, and no criminal charges will be filed.
