3-year-old hit by car pulling out of parking space in Kennewick

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A 3-year-old boy was hit by a car in the parking lot outside Ross off Canal Drive Friday afternoon. 

Kennewick Police Sgt. Jason Kiel said the child moved in front of a Jeep as it was pulling out of a parking space. The driver couldn't see the child and struck him, causing him to go under the car.

Sgt. Kiel said the boy had some scrapes and was taken to a local hospital as a safety precaution. The driver is cooperating with police. 

Officers responded to the scene at about 12:37 p.m. They said the boy was near his parents but not right next to them.

The parents could potentially be cited for failure to supervise, Sgt. Kiel said.
