LAWTON, Okla._ A child was rushed to the hospital after being hit by a vehicle in a southwest Lawton neighborhood, police say.

“I wasn’t sure if he was dead or alive; nobody was sure,” says Jasmine Dick, a neighbor who came outside after hearing the commotion.

The accident happened after 8 p.m. at the intersection of SW 46th Street and J Avenue.

“I was cooking, and then I came outside and seen my neighbors across the street picking up a baby's lifeless body from under the truck, and I was like, "Oh my god, please don't tell me that man just hit this baby,” recalls Dick. “All of the sudden everyone started screaming. It was ugly. It was a hot mess."

Dick says the driver was given a field sobriety test, and after passing, was released by police.

No word on the victim’s updated condition. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
