Hobbs Police Chief released a statement about a 14-year-old boy who was hit by a vehicle near Hobbs High School.
According to the report, the 14-year-old boy was using the crosswalk at the intersection of Jefferson and Sanger. The crash occurred in the morning so visibility was likely reduced. Also, residents in Hobbs are not used to much foot traffic in the area. While police acknowledge this, they also say adults should be mindful that school is in session and some kids walk. The 14-year-old boy was taken to Lea Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.
The report didn’t say how severe the boy’s injuries were, but he is expected to make a full recovery. The driver who hit the boy was cited for careless driving at the scene. At this time, no criminal charges have been filed. Since the crash involved a minor, the boy’s name was not released to the public and at this time, there has been no word from the boy’s parents. We will keep you updated if the family will sue for the boy’s damages.
We hope the boy involved recovers quickly and continues to live life fully.
