JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

An 8-year-old is fighting for his life after being struck by a car on Highway 11 in Jones County.

According to authorities, the child is stable but is still in the ICU. As of September 1, the child is still listed in critical condition. 

The scene: 

Just after 7 a.m. Tuesday emergency responders received the call of a child struck by a car in the 2700 block of Hwy 11.

“He was waiting on the bus with his brother when he apparently ran out into the street,” said Mississippi Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Brent Barfield.

“The child was struck by a Nissan Altima driven by Lori McNease of Moselle that was traveling southbound,” said Barfield.

Air ambulance Rescue 7 was called to the scene to transport the child.

“Apparently the kid and sibling were on the east side of Hwy 11, waiting on a school bus. According to witnesses, the 8 year-old goes across Highway 11 and looks in the mail box, shuts the box and turns to come back across, and was struck by the car,” said Barfield.

The child was transported to a Jackson hospital in critical condition.

Troopers are still on the scene working the accident reconstruction aspects of the wreck.

At this time, no charges have been filed against McNease, however the wreck is still under investigation.
