HERRIMAN, Utah — A two-year-old boy was hit by a vehicle in Herriman Wednesday morning, and later Wednesday police stated he is in fair condition and will make a full recovery.

According to Unified Police, it happened at a pre-school near 4600 W Box Meadow Circle. A tweet from UPD said the driver is a 36-year-old man who came to pick up  his child from the pre-school.

“After he had put his child in his car a 2 year old boy who had been on the front porch walked to the front of this car and was struck by it as it began to move forward,” the tweet said.

According to UPD, the boy suffered abrasions to his arms.  He was taken by medical helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital over concerns that he may have been under the car’s tire at some point.

Later Wednesday evening police said the boy is listed in fair condition and will make a full recovery. The mother of the child tells police the boy darted out in front of the car.
