Child transported after being struck by vehicle

Kevin Pool, 4, of Lakeview, was transported by private vehicle to Mary Rutan Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries after he was struck by a car Thursday afternoon.

Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report that Vicki A. Jeanneret, 46, of Lakeview, was operating a southbound vehicle in the 11200 block of Tecumseh Path about 4:50 p.m. Her vehicle struck the boy, who had “darted” onto the road from the west side of the street, deputies report.  

Ms. Jeanneret said she heard her vehicle hit something, so she stopped her car and then found the boy, who lives on that street and reportedly had been playing at a neighbor’s house.

The driver said she was only going about 2 mph at the time of the crash since she had just made a turn from Blue Jacket Path.

The child later was transported by Robinaugh squad from Mary Rutan Hospital to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.
