Fox 25 is reporting that 11-year-old boy stuck in an alleged hit and run has a long road to recovery. Family members appeared on the local new station and identified Francis Nedwell as the boy who was struck at the intersection of Columbia Road and Intervale Street around 7:24am on Wednesday.
According to the report, Nedwell is in stable condition at Boston Children’s Hospital and suffering damage to his lungs, six broken ribs and a broken pelvis. The fifth grader at Roxbury Prep’s Dorchester campus, just got off an MBTA bus with his mom and sister before he was struck by the car.
BPD announced early this week that in addition to finding the car involved in the incident, they have also arrested the driver – although that person has not been identified.
