5-year-old boy fighting for his life after serious pedestrian crash in Norfolk County



A young boy is fighting for his life after a serious weekend pedestrian crash.

According to police, at approximately 11:00 a.m. Saturday, police and fire units were dispatched to the area of 332 Central Street in Foxborough for a crash involving a pedestrian.

Upon arrival, responders located a 5-year-old boy who had been struck by a passing vehicle. The boy was suffering from serious life-threatening injuries. He was subsequently transported to Hasbro Children’s Hospital by Foxborough Fire.

Preliminary information suggests that the child, who is not from Foxborough, was visiting family in a nearby residence. He was outside playing with his older cousins who crossed the street to play with other neighborhood kids. The 5-year-old, who was trailing behind them, attempted to cross the street when he was struck by the passing vehicle.

The area where the crash occurred is a straight section of two-lane roadway and there are no crosswalks in the area. Initial investigation by members of the Department’s Reconstruction Unit is showing that speed was not a factor.

The crash remains under investigation by the Department’s Reconstruction Unit and Detectives, who were assisted on scene by the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office, and Walpole Police.

The driver of the involved vehicle remained on scene and fully cooperated with investigators. He is a Foxborough resident and was not injured.
