Condition unavailable for boy hurt in skateboarding accident

The condition of a Hagerstown boy who was injured Wednesday in a skateboarding accident was unavailable Thursday night, a spokeswoman at Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C., said.

Michael Patrick Rizzo, 8, was taken Wednesday to Washington County Hospital to be treated for critical injuries before he was flown to Children's Hospital, the Hagerstown Police Department said.

Rizzo was one of three children who were hanging onto a 1988 Jeep Cherokee while riding skateboards when the accident occurred about 5:45 p.m. in the 400 block of North Prospect Street, police said.

Hagerstown Police Capt. Mark Holtzman said Thursday that Rizzo's father, Michael Dodd Rizzo, 48, of the same address, was driving the Jeep.


Another boy, Daniel Allan Feigley, 11, of 100 W. North St., sustained minor injuries during the incident, Holtzman said. The third boy was uninjured.
