FENNVILLE, Mich. — At approximately 7:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle.

A 15-year-old male was struck near the intersection of Elm street and 3rd street in the City of Fennville.

“All I was doing was out with my sister feeding the animals,” said Bernice Skaggs, a resident that lives near the intersection. “I heard screaming from other kids and yelling and stuff like that and we came to see what was going on and we found out a little kid got hit.”

The driver, according to police, did not see the teen while turning a corner. The teen’s injuries appear to be non life threatening, and he was transported to Holland Community Hospital for a possible broken leg.

The driver was cited and released.
