HOUSTON—A driver ran a red light and hit a 9-year-old boy who was riding a bicycle Sunday in southwest Houston, police said.
It happened just after 9 p.m. in the 7500 block of Creekbend.
Witnesses said the boy and his father had just left a barbecue and were going to the store when the driver sped through a red light.
The little boy was rushed to the hospital, but he is expected to be OK.
Police took the driver away in handcuffs, but it’s unclear what kind of charges he may face.
