Child Injured in Collision

Meridian police are investigating a late morning accident at 31st Street and 7th Avenue.

Apparently, a young boy approximately seven years old, rode his
bike into a van. The child was taken to a local hospital.

"They don't have anywhere to play, unless they're playing in the street. You know, they need a playground over here, said resident
Shirley Webb, who added that several neighbors are concerned about children playing in the area.

The child's identity and condition were not available.
