HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Police in Helena say an 8-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk and the driver was cited for failure to yield.

Lt. Torey Keltner says the boy was upset and crying when emergency responders arrived and he was taken to the hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

The Independent Record reports (https://bit.ly/1CVNemF ) the boy, his mother and sister were crossing the street on a green light Tuesday afternoon when a car turned and struck the boy.

Police say the driver of the vehicle initially intended to go straight through the intersection, but decided to turn right due to the high volume of traffic. The driver was cited for failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
