2-year-old in intensive care after being hit by a car

WARSAW, KY (FOX19) -

A 2-year-old is in intensive care after being hit by a car Saturday night.

Police say that 2-year-old Brandon Perez, of Warsaw, was hit by a car driven by 50-year-old Barbara Lewis, of Warsaw, after he ran in the roadway of U.S. 42 after attending a local church function.

Perez was transported to the University of Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Police believe that the rainy nighttime conditions combined with Perez wearing dark clothing may have contributed to the accident.

Lewis will not face any criminal charges.

The accident is still under investigation by an accident reconstructionist.
