A 6-year-old boy was hit by a car in Coral Springs Tuesday afternoon.
The accident happened on Woodside Driver and Northwest 35th Court.
Coral Springs Police said the child darted in between cars when the boy was struck by a woman behind the wheel. The car was driving into "The Preserves" housing development.
"He flew really high," said Javier Diaz, who witnessed the crash. "His sister picked him up from the floor and I yelled at her no. No, that's the worst thing you can do. Put him back," said Diaz.
The 6-year-old was rushed to Broward Health North Medical Center in stable condition. Police said the boy will be okay.
"He had a open wound, from the nose all the way. I mean he opened his lip, sliced open," said Diaz.
The driver remained on scene. According to preliminary reports, the driver will not be cited because the child ran into traffic. However, the accident is still under investigation.
Several neighbors who lived in a nearby housing development said a traffic light or more police enforcement in the school zone around hunt elementary is needed.
