OSWEGO — A car-pedestrian accident Monday in the city of Oswego resulted in a juvenile’s transportation to Oswego Hospital with “minor injuries,” law enforcement officials said.
Oswego City Police officers, firefighters and Menter Ambulance emergency medical technicians (EMTs) responded at 1:25 p.m. Monday to a car-pedestrian accident at the intersection of West Bridge and West Second streets, officials told The Palladium-Times.
Police officers directed traffic around the scene of the accident at the intersection of West Bridge and West Second streets as EMTs transported the juvenile into a Menter ambulance and police questioned nearby pedestrians.
OPD Deputy Chief Zachary Misztal said the juvenile who was struck by the car was immediately transported to the Oswego Hospital emergency room, sustaining “minor injuries.”
The Oswego City Police Department report said the youth was traveling on foot, walking against the traffic signal in the intersection of West Bridge and West Second streets when hit by the automobile, Misztal said.
“Our report shows that it was the juvenile’s actions that caused the accident to occur,” Misztal said in an interview with The Palladium-Times in the hours following the incident. “No tickets have been issued at this time.”
