Montebello Child Injured In Accident

A 6-year-old boy was critically injured and his father suffered minor injuries when an unlicensed driver accidentally stepped on the gas pedal of a small sport utility vehicle, a police lieutenant said last Saturday.

The crash occurred about 9 p.m. Nov. 23 on Sixth Street, south of Beverly Boulevard, said Montebello police Lt. Rich Meadows. He said the driver was not cited or arrested, but added the investigation was still ongoing.

Paramedics rushed the boy and his father to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, Meadows said.
