Wheelchair bound youth struck by car in - 121 sidewalkcar

MEREDITH — A wheelchair-bound local youth was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia by Stewart's ambulance yesterday evening after he was struck by a car while crossing Main Street in a crosswalk at 5:17 p.m.

Police Sgt. Robert Chance said the boy's injuries appeared not to be life-threatening.

He said the youth was near the corner of Main and Lake Street by the Public Library when a car driven by Kenneth Brady, 47, of Corliss Hill Road struck him.

Chance said Brady was unable to stop before hitting the boy but was able to stop his 2009 Toyota Corolla while it was still in the crosswalk.

Police said neither drugs, alcohol, nor cell phone use were factors in what Chance called an accident.
