PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - A 3-year-old child is being transported to Children's Hospital in Birmingham after being struck by a vehicle Thursday. The child is in serious condition.

The accident happened around noon at A&J Car Wash at 501 E. Main Street in Prattville. Prattville police arrived on the scene a short time later.

Investigators say the 3-year-old, unidentified by name but said to be from Autaugaville, ran from a car wash bay into the rear passenger side of a truck. The truck's rear wheel then ran over the child.

Authorities say the truck had just dropped off a trailer and was going across the parking lot when the accident happened. The driver did not see the child, feeling only a bump before stopping.

The incident is under investigation, but no charges are expected to be filed.
