MAYNARD – Chief Mark Dubois and Chief Anthony Stowers report that the Maynard Police and Fire Departments responded after a child was struck by a vehicle this afternoon.

On Monday, Nov. 21, at approximately 2:42 p.m., Maynard Police and Fire responded to Tiger Drive for a report of a child struck by a vehicle.

Upon arrival, first responders discovered that a 9-year-old boy had been struck by a Honda Odyssey van. The 9-year-old was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
