Andrew Bowser, 14, was walking to Butler Intermediate School on Pillow Street when the pedestrian accident occurred. Bowser was around a block and a half away from his home when he attempted to cross at an intersection.
WPXI reports that the boy was hit by the mirror of a construction vehicle as he tried to cross the street. The boy suffered a broken collarbone and various cuts on his head. He claims to not remember being hit by the company vehicle.
Bowser’s school principal drove to the scene and went to the hospital with the boy, according to WPXI. It is unknown if the construction vehicle driver will face charges in the collision.
