LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

A little boy who was hit by a car in Longview is expected to recover from bad injuries to his head and lower body.

A spokesman for the Longview Fire said the car was traveling at about 20 miles per hour on Dorothy Avenue when the 5-year-old boy was struck late Saturday afternoon.

When medical responders arrived the boy was laying the middle of the street.  He was conscious and his father was right next to him.

Lanes of traffic were shut down as the boy was loaded into an ambulance and transported to Peace Health St. John Medical Center.

The Longview Fire Department is reminding drivers to be aware of children playing outside, especially now that school is out for the summer.
