An 11-year-old Shallowater boy is hospitalized after being trapped underneath the front of a car.
Aerocare airlifted the child from Shallowater to a local hospital around 7:15pm this evening. Witnesses say the boy fell off his bike in the middle of County Road 5860. Before getting back on the bike, he started to play with his dog. That's when, both the boy and the dog were hit by a 79-year-old driver. Officers say the driver never saw the boy, because the sun was setting at that time.
Again, the boy is being treated for serious injuries. His dog, however, died in the accident.
