City and police officials seek people’s feedback

BATAVIA — A child who was struck by a pickup truck Monday afternoon at an Otis Street residence is in serious, but stable, condition at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, city police say.

No charges are pending and there was no impairment or intoxication is suspected, police said. Police Monday reported that the girl had been run over by the pickup truck and was seriously injured.

At 3:51 p.m. Monday, the Batavia police were dispatched to Otis Street for the report of a 6-year old female who had been struck by a vehicle. When police arrived, the child was conscious and she spoke with officers. City of Batavia Fire Department and Mercy EMS crews responded and evaluated the child on scene. The child was then transported to the Mercy Flight helipad, where the girl was flown to Strong.

“The accident occurred on private property at the residence on Otis Street, not on the roadway. Batavia police interviewed the residents that were present at the time, including the driver,” police said.

The driver, who was not identified, disconnected a trailer from his pickup truck and moved the vehicle, striking the child who was in the yard on the passenger side of the vehicle.
