A child has been struck, outside the shoney's restaurant at skipwith and broad. We're told it happened less than an hour ago.

Police say they were coming out of the restaurant, when the two year old child ran into the street. The mother chased the boy, but ended up being hit.

The child is in the hospital tonight... And while we don't know the extent of the injuries.
