According to news sources, a young teenage boy was struck by a vehicle Tuesday evening when he reportedly started running on the roadway to reach his mothers vehicle.
The 16-year-old teenage boy was waiting for his mother to come pick him up outside Santa Ynez Valley Union High School, according to California Highway Patrol.
His mothers vehicle was at a left turn lane on Highway 246 when the boy reportedly spotted her and proceeded to run towards the vehicle. At that point the boy was struck by a 2007 Ford Ranger being driven by a 64-year-old man, the CHP said.
The boy was injured in the accident and transported to an area hospital for treatment. The driver of the vehicle was not charged in the incident, a CHP officer said.
