An 11-year-old boy has been upgraded to satisfactory condition after being hit by a car on Wednesday night. Witnesses say Humberto Perez was riding his bike on County Road 5860 in Shallowater when he fell. Before getting back on the bike, he stopped to play with his dog. That's when an elderly driver hit both of them.
Aerocare flew the Perez to a local hospital with serious injuries around 7:15 p.m. The dog was killed. Officers say the driver never saw the boy because her visibility was impaired due the sun.
