DOWAGIAC, Mich. (WOOD) — A 15-year-old boy was hit by a car while walking down the street with friends Saturday night in Dowagiac.

Police say the victim was walking down Oak Street near E. Telegraph Street with friends when a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old Dowagiac resident came from behind the group and hit the 15-year-old around 7 p.m. Saturday.

The 15-year-old was taken to Borgess Lee Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

The driver of the vehicle told police that they did not see the group due to the lights from an oncoming vehicle.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
