Santa Maria Police: child hit by car, flown to local hospital

Santa Maria Police say an 18-month-old child was struck by a car Saturday night in the 900 block of West Cox Lane.

Officials say a family member was backing out of the driveway when they struck the child. The car wasn't moving fast. The driver heard the child crying, stopped the car, and found the child under the car.

The child was flown to a local hospital in a CAL STAR helicopter.

Officials are investigating if alcohol was a factor in the collision.

No arrests have been made at this time.
