Boy hit by car on Fowler Street in Kannapolis

KANNAPOLIS ó A 9-year-old boy was injured Wednesday after being hit by a car on a neighborhood street just outside Kannapolis.
According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, Darren Shockley was walking with a friend along Fowler Street around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday when Kannapolis resident Vicki Schramm struck him in an Oldsmobile.
Schramm, 61, told authorities she didn’t see Darren or his friend at first, and the speed of her vehicle was estimated at 25 mph.
No charges have been filed.
Officials were unable to determine whether Darren, who lives nearby, was walking in the road or beside it. A neighbor who ran to the scene within seconds saw the child lying in the road with Schramm, 61, stopped behind him.
The 9-year-old was transferred Wednesday night to Carolinas Medical Center from CMC-Northeast, where he was initially taken with a broken arm, a cut on the back of his head and some internal injuries. A Highway Patrol trooper reported that the boy was conscious and alert in the hospital.
