FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) - A 6-year-old boy is expected to recover after he was hit by a vehicle in Forest Park Thursday morning, police said.

Crews responded to the 800 block of West Kemper Road just before 8:30 a.m., according to Hamilton County dispatchers.

The boy, 6, was hit when he started to walk into the street before his school bus driver activated her yellow safety lights and stop sign just before 8:30 a.m., police said.

The driver of the striking vehicle stopped and cooperated.

The boy suffered just minor injuries. He was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Liberty Township.

A preliminary investigation determined the child was at fault because he headed into the street too soon, police said.

No charges or citations will be issued.
