A Nacogdoches boy is recovering after being hit by a truck Sunday.
Police say the six-year-old ran out in front of the truck as the driver turned onto Terracewood off Applebee Sands Road. The driver slammed on his breaks but could not stop in time. The child did not appear to be seriously hurt but was taken to the hospital for treatment.
This accident is an unfortunate reminder to watch out for children playing in and near the streets.
