10-Year-Old Boy in Stable Condition After Being Struck by a Car in Wales


WALES, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are investigating after a child was hit by a car Friday afternoon in the eastern Hampden County town of Wales.

Around 1:20 p.m. Friday, a 10-year-old boy and his stepbrother were riding their bikes near the intersection of Union Road and Stafford Road (Route 19).

The pair were leaving a nearby parking lot when the 10-year-old was hit by a 2001 Lincoln Towncar.

The boy, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, suffered some serious injuries and was found by medical helicopter to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, where he is listed in stable condition.

The driver, a 68-year-old man from Danbury, Conn., was not injured, nor was the boy’s stepbrother.

Members of the Wales Police Department and the State Police Accident Reconstruction Team are continuing to investigate what occurred.

No charges or citations have been issued.

Union Road was closed for most of the afternoon while crews remained on-scene. The road re-opened just after 5:00 p.m.
