Yorkville Police: “Accident Could Have Been Worse”

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

An accident involving a 10 year-old boy in Yorkville could have been much worse.

Patrick Collea, with Yorkville Police, says the child was in the driveway of his home Wednesday evening around seven, when his father accidentally scraped the boy’s leg with the front tire of his vehicle while backing up.

Collea said the boy suffered cuts to his leg, but was treated at the scene and taken to Saint Elizabeth Medical Center for further treatment.

“I tried to explain it to his dad because he was all shook up,” Collea said. “I said, ‘This is a fortunate accident where there’s minimal injury.’ It could have been a heck of a lot worse.”

No tickets were issued.
