GALVESTON — An 8-year-old schoolboy darted away from his mother Monday morning and into the path of a car, but only his foot was injured, authorities said.
The KIPP Coastal Village student at Rosenberg School, 721 10th St., was walking north on 11th Street about 7:20 a.m. when he darted away from his mother and left the crosswalk, Galveston police Sgt. Annie Almendarez said.
A car traveling slowly west through a school zone on Ball Street stopped immediately, but not before it struck the boy’s foot.
