A seven year old boy sustained injury Tuesday night when he was hit by a pickup truck in Center.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says the accident happened at 9:30 pm on West Ely Street in Center just west of Clark. Troopers say a pickup driven by 18 year old Jacob Aitken of Center was westbound on West Ely when seven-year-old Braden Lemar ran across the street and into the path of the truck.

Troopers say Lemar was taken by a private driver to New London and then by air evac to Blessing Hospital with moderate injuries.
