Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A city garbage truck ran over a 9-year-old boy Thursday as he rode a skateboard in North Park, leaving him gravely injured, authorities reported.

The child was skating along Meade Avenue when the northbound utility vehicle hit him at Kansas Street about 1:15 p.m., according to San Diego police.

"The juvenile fell under the trash truck and was crushed by the undercarriage," SDPD Officer Frank Cali said.

Medics took the boy to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening internal injuries and multiple compound fractures.

Traffic investigators were seeking to determine who was to blame for the incident, Cali said.
