A 13 year old boy is recovering in hospital after being hit by a car on Wednesday. It happened over the noon hour at University Drive and Garry Drive West near Father Leonard Van Tighem School. Police say the lights for the North / South traffic on University Drive had turned green when the young pedestrian ran across the road in front of on-coming southbound traffic . The teen was transported to the hospital but injuries are not life threatening. No charges have been laid.
