Three year old boy walks home after being struck by car

At around 4.50pm on Monday 24 February, a 3 year-old boy was crossing Cedar Road, Chesterton accompanied by two older children when he was in collision with a car.

The driver stopped to make sure the boy was okay. It was initially thought he was uninjured.

However, when the boy returned home his mother discovered he had suffered a leg injury and he was taken to hospital for treatment.

The vehicle involved is believed to be a black Fiat Punto with an 04 registration plate.

We would like to trace the vehicle and driver and ask that they, or anyone who knows of their identity, contact PC Darren Preston on 101 quoting incident 734 of 24 February. We are also keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision.

  1. Why was he walking alone and at 3 years old. Not good wherewas his mum.i will never let my kids walk alone to or from school with all kids going missing. My lids r my life

  2. Older children. The clue is in the word, are not responsible for younger siblings or friends. Parents are. Children get side tracked and they do not have a full grasp of danger or consequence. In saying that it appears niether do some parents. So parents you chose to have your children , you look after them.
