Wake Forest, N.C. — A 9-year-old boy riding a bicycle was hit by a vehicle on Forestville Road at Autumn Forest Trail Tuesday night.
A group of children were playing in a yard when Logan Decosta either stumbled or fell while riding towards the road, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said. Decosta was getting back up when he was struck by a passing vehicle.
Decosta was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon, troopers said. No charges have been filed, but troopers are still investigating the incident.
Denise Huffman, the driver of the car, told investigators that she didn't see the boy.
"She said it was black, pitch black dark and she did not see the boy come out in front of her," Trooper Ryan Absher said.
Logan is a student ad Rolesville Elementary School.
No further information was immediately available.
