Sledding accident in Ohio leaves 9-year-old critically hurt
NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A sledding accident in suburban Cleveland has left a 9-year-old boy with life-threatening injuries.
Police in North Ridgeville say the boy was hit by a car Tuesday afternoon when his sled went into a street at the bottom of a popular sledding hill.
Officers say the boy became trapped underneath the vehicle.
Media reports say he was flown to a Cleveland hospital, where he was in critical condition Wednesday.
A neighbor tells WEWS-TV in Cleveland that the boy’s family was at home cooking dinner when the accident happened.
Much of Cleveland and northern Ohio has had a mild winter up until this week, when several inches of snow and low temperatures moved into the region along Lake Erie.
