RAYNHAM — Police Chief James Donovan and Fire Chief Bryan LaCivita report that the Raynham Police and Fire Departments responded on Sunday afternoon after a girl was struck by a motor vehicle in the driveway of her home.
Rescuers were dispatched to a single family home on Hall Street at 2:52 p.m. for a report of a child struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival, police officers and firefighters found a 12-year-old girl had been struck by a vehicle.
The victim was partially run over by the vehicle. She was treated by medics at the scene and transported by medical helicopter to Children’s Hospital Boston with serious injuries. She is expected to survive.
A preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was sunbathing in her driveway when a 41-year-old male relative pulled into the driveway, not realizing the child was there.
The incident is under investigation by the Raynham Police Department Traffic Crash Reconstruction Unit.
