    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.
