- The Lincoln Police Department was requested to the 1600 block of
Broadway St, on Saturday, February 6, 2016, at about 3:44 PM in
reference to a child who was hit by a vehicle and was not breathing.
Lincoln Police Department, Lincoln Fire Department, Logan County
Paramedics, and Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call.
According to statements gathered by officers, a 8 year old boy ran
out into the traffic lane and was struck by a 2012 Chevrolet
Silverado traveling westbound on Broadway St. The vehicle belonged
to a Mt. Pulaski, IL, resident.
The boy was transported to Peoria and is in stable condition. There
have been no citations or arrests at this time.
This investigation is still in progress by the Lincoln Police
Department. An Illinois State Police Crash Reconstructionist was
requested and assisted in the investigation at the scene. Our hearts
and prayers go out to the boy involved, his family, and to everyone
