A woman accidentally struck and injured her 8-year-old son as she backed out of a driveway in Fremont Sunday afternoon, a police officer said today.
The collision occurred at about 11 a.m. in the 40900 block of Abuelo Way.
Fremont police traffic Officer John Flynn said the woman thought the child was in the vehicle, but that he was outside standing to the left of the car.
The boy sustained severe abrasions to his shoulders and wounds to his knees, Flynn said. The injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
“He was alert and coherent at the scene,'' Flynn said.
The boy was taken to Children's Hospital Oakland for treatment.
