Upon arriving on scene, there was a 12-year-old male in the roadway with visible injuries.
According to a witness, the male exited the bus then went to the mailbox across the street. He retrieved the mail, then darted back across Euharlee Road and was allegedly struck by the vehicle as he crossed the road.
He was airlifted to Scottish Rite Medical Center and, while in flight, diverted to the Egleston Children’s Hospital where he was taken directly into surgery.
The juvenile is now out of surgery and in serious but stable condition at Egleston Children’s Hospital.
