We're just getting word this morning from the Sun Journal that a young boy was struck by a vehicle just before 7p last night (8-12-19) while attempting to cross Sabattus street near the South of The Border restaurant.

Authorities indicated the boy suffered a 'severe head injury' and had been taken to Central Maine Medical Center. Officials have not yet released any information on the driver and were working on reconstructing the accident.

We will keep this story updated as more information becomes available.
