Boy, 4, hit by vehicle in Newaygo County

DENVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A 4-year-old boy is in critical condition after being hit by a vehicle in Newaygo County.

It happened around 6 p.m. Monday at M-20 and North Dickinson Avenue in Denver Township, east of Hesperia.

Newaygo County deputies determined the 4-year-old boy crossed the roadway in front of a westbound vehicle driven by a 62-year-old Fremont man.
