A 7-year old boy was injured early Monday evening on Newport Avenue by a car while he and his family were looking at Christmas lights. The young lad remains hospitalized Tuesday with a serious injury to his left leg.

Just before 6:30 p.m. Monday the boy and his family were walking on the north side of the 4700 block of Newport Avenue looking at the holiday displays on the south side when the as-yet unidentified youngster stepped into the street. The north side of that block borders OB Elementary School and there are many residences across the street with festive and lit displays.

The boy was hit by a 2006 Lexus sedan headed west on one of OB’s main streets. The boy was transported to a local hospital with a serious leg injury not believed to be life-threatening. The 55-year-old male driver remained on the scene. Police stated alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the accident.
