The driver of the car was a 65-year old man. Officers are trying to determine how fast he was going at the time of crash.

Police say now is the time for drivers to start being more aware of kids. Sgt. Jake Moosman, with the Lone Peak Police Department, said, "[It's] a reminder to drivers out there that it's spring break and summer is coming up, so we're going to see a lot more kids out on the streets."

The boy was taken to the hospital by helicopter with a head injury.
