At 7:24 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8, police radio reported that a vehicle had struck a child on the 3300 block of Idlewild Way in a residential area of Clairemont. A two-year-old boy reportedly ran into the street and was hit by a vehicle.
As units arrived at the scene, a radio dispatcher stated the boy — who was unconscious — was, “…possibly not breathing.” Medics tended to the child and took him away in an ambulance. Dispatch also requested a Spanish speaker at the scene.
While police remained near the incident, roads around the area were closed off — Idlewild Way was blocked off from Jutland Drive to Karok Avenue. Later reports indicated that the driver stayed during the investigation. The child remained hospitalized after the accident and his condition is unknown.
