10-year-old boy hurt when snow sled hits oncoming car

Posted 7:56 a.m. Thursday

— Authorities say a 10-year-old boy has been seriously hurt when his snow sled hit a car in Mount Airy.

Surry County emergency services director John Shelton told local media that the crash happened shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday. Shelton says the boy was sledding in his yard when the sled went into the road and hit an oncoming car.

The boy was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Shelton would not release the boy's name because of federal privacy laws.

It's the second serious injury this week in Surry County. A 4-year-old boy was hurt Monday when his sled hit a tree in Pilot Mountain. He is also being treated at the Winston-Salem hospital.

Much of North Carolina was blanketed by snow Saturday and Sunday.
