September 02, 2010

HAGERSTOWN -- An 8-year-old boy was in critical condition Wednesday night at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., after a skateboard accident at 440 N. Prospect St. earlier in the day, according to a Hagerstown Police Department spokesman.

The accident occurred at about 5:45 p.m., when three juveniles were hanging onto a Jeep while riding skateboards, Sgt. Chad Woodring said late Wednesday.

The 8-year-old boy lost his balance, and it is believed he was struck by the Jeep, Woodring said.

It was not clear how the boy was struck, Woodring said.

Woodring said he was not releasing the name of the boy or the name of the man who was driving the Jeep.

Woodring said the driver of the Jeep made a statement to police.
