Newton boy badly hurt when struck by SUV while walking
Anthony Lebel is listed in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Boston Children’s Hospital, a hospital spokesman said Wednesday morning.
Anthony and his 8-year-old brother were returning after walking their friend’s dog home when the accident occurred just before 5 p.m., Streeter said.
Anthony, who was closest to the road, didn’t see the Jeep and was struck, Streeter said.
The driver, identified as Kevin Medeiros of Newton, stopped several feet away in the driveway of the boys’ home.
Medeiros, who lives at 43 Maple Ave., told police he didn’t see the boys, Streeter said.
Streeter said Anthony suffered what appeared to be a “significant laceration” to the back of his head and may have broken bones, Streeter said.
Pivero described Anthony as a “great kid.”
To reduce the risk of injury from passing motorists, Streeter urged pedestrians to walk against the flow of traffic so they can see vehicles coming toward them.
