HOUSTON –- A 10-year-old child suffered minor injuries in an auto-pedestrian incident in north Houston, police said Friday morning.
The child was struck in the 6900 block of Helmers Street near Herrera Elementary School.
An upset parent told KHOU 11 News another auto-pedestrian accident occurred in front of the school not long ago and requests have been made to put speed bumps in.
“We’ve been trying to get speed bumps here for the longest, you know, I’ve talked to the principal and he said he’s been talking to the councilman here, I guess is Ed Gonzalez, he said he’s been trying for five years,” said Jose Moreno. “Two accidents happened. What is it going to take, for somebody to die?”
Police at the scene said the child was sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
