DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver are investigating a crash that left a child crossing the street with serious injuries.

Copter4 flew over the crash scene at Ohio and University just before 5 p.m. Friday. A fire truck and several police vehicles were at the intersection directing traffic and gathering evidence.

Denver Police tweeted out the accident left a child with serious injuries but that it was not a hit-and-run.

Police were investigating what happened leading up to the crash. The driver involved is cooperating with police and did not leave the scene.

Police said the child, a 3-year-old boy, was walking with his mother and older sister across the street. They had the right of way in the crosswalk before the boy was struck by a vehicle that was making a turn.

“A car was traveling, going west, turned and struck them as they were traveling across the street,” Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said.

The boy was rushed to Denver Health and then transported to Children’s Hospital with serious injuries.

Some neighbors say the intersection just in front of Bonnie Brae Ice Cream is notoriously dangerous for pedestrians.

“It doesn’t matter, they come at you from all sides anyway, making right turns,” area resident Tone Carr said. “You don’t have rights here in Denver if you’re a pedestrian. It’s just devastating, you know?”
