Boy, 12, struck in Newton remains hospitalized
The boy and his 8-year-old brother were returning after walking their friend's dog home when the accident occurred just before 5 p.m., Streeter said.
The boy was thrown about three feet and lost his left shoe from the impact, Streeter said.
Medeiros also lives on Maple Avenue, Streeter said.
Streeter said the cause of the accident remains under investigation.
His brother wasn't hurt.
Mike Pivero, the town's road agent who also lives on Maple Avenue and is a friend of the boy's family, said he arrived just after the accident. He said the boy remained conscious while rescue personnel treated him at the scene.
Pivero described the boy as a "great kid."
