SYRACUSE, Utah – A 14-year-old boy was flown to a hospital in critical condition after he was hit by a car in a crosswalk in Syracuse.

Det. Erin Behm of the Syracuse Police Department said the crash occurred at 1000 West and Antelope Drive (1700 South) around 3:45 p.m. as the boy was within a crosswalk on his bicycle.

A man attempting a turn onto Antelope Drive did not see the child and struck him, Behm said.

The child suffered head injuries and was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital in critical condition.
