Small child doing well after being hit by postal truck in Euless

A 15-month-old child who was hit by a postal truck is in good condition after spending Monday night at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Euless police Lt. Eric Starnes said the police and fire departments responded on Monday to an automobile-pedestrian accident in the 1100 block of Middlebury Lane.

Starnes said a helicopter transported the child, who was alert and conscious at the time, to the hospital. He said the child suffered abrasions and a small internal tear in her abdominal area.

The postal driver has not been charged.
