A 13-year-old boy was recovering Wednesday from injuries he suffered when he was struck by a vehicle Tuesday night on Broadway Street.


The youth, who was not identified by police, sustained “what we thought were serious injuries,” but which were later determined not to be life threatening, police Public Information Officer Mike Eeten said.


The boy had left the Family Video store at 1712 Broadway shortly after 8 p.m. with his younger sister when he stepped in front of an eastbound SUV and was struck, Eeten said. The younger child was not struck or injured.


The victim was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria with injuries to his head and other parts of the body, Eeten said. His condition was not available Wednesday.


Eeten said the driver was not issued a ticket. Police closed Broadway off after the accident for a reconstruction investigation. It was reopened by early Wednesday.
