BUFFALO, NY- A young boy and his mother were taken to the hospital Sunday night after police say the boy hit his mother with the family vehicle while backing it out of the driveway.
According to police, the boy, who is 12-years-old, was backing the vehicle up at his home on Como Avenue when the car door apparently struck the mom. The boy then continued to back up the car, and eventually struck a house across the street.
The mother was transported to Mercy Hospital to be checked out. Police do not believe the boy is injured, but later decided to transport him to Children's Hospital.
A city engineer was called to the scene to see if there was any structural damage to the house that was hit by the car.
