Vehicle vs Pedestrian

On 01-06-2019 at approximately 1700 hours, the Sparks Police Department (SPD) responded to Renown Hospital reference a vehicle vs pedestrian accident at Dilworth Middle School. During the investigation, officers discovered the vehicle accident had occurred at the intersection of I St. and 1st St.  Officers learned the driver and a witness had contacted SPD Dispatch and reported the juvenile was running in the crosswalk and attempted to stop for the vehicle which was already crossing the crosswalk. As the juvenile tried to stop to avoid the vehicle, he slid under the vehicles rear tire and his ankle was run over causing a fracture.  


The driver and witness stopped and asked if the juvenile was injured. The juvenile showed the witness and the driver his ankle and told them he was uninjured. The juvenile then ran out of the area saying he needed to get home. The driver was identified as a 72-year-old resident of Sparks. Neither the victim or juvenile were cited or arrested for the accident.
