Teen hit by car rushed to hospital

A TEENAGE boy has been rushed to hospital this morning after being struck by a car's side mirror as he walked along Knutsford Street in Rockhampton.

Police are still speaking with the driver of the white van, which they say struck the 14-year-old under his right arm around 9.45am.

A police spokesman said the teenager appeared to be on his way to go fishing and was walking with two other people at the time.

He was still conscious when he was taken to hospital, believed to be suffering a cut under his arm from the incident, which happened near the corner of North Street.

Police said it was too early to say if the boy was walking too close to the road.
