A seven-year-old boy suffered an injury to his left leg after a car crashed into him at 1:13 p.m. Saturday.

The crash happened in the parking lot at Dick’s Sporting Goods, 2710 S. Green Bay Road, according to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

The boy was running in the parking lot ahead of his father when he tried to get his son to stop. He ran into the main aisle just as a woman, who was driving a Ford pick-up truck, was headed northbound. He has a severe leg injury, but it is non-life threatening. Rescue workers with the South Shore Fire Department took the boy by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee.

The woman told police she did not see him because other parked cars were in the way. Witnesses told police the woman was traveling at a slow speed. She did not show any signs of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
