A 17-year-old boy skateboarding in downtown Danville was struck by a car Friday afternoon at the intersection of Hartz and Linda Mesa avenues, according to a town spokesman.
The teen was taken to John Muir Medical Center for treatment for a head injury that was considered non-life-threatening, according to Geoff Gillette, town public information coordinator.
Danville police did not issue any citations following the crash that occurred around 3:50 p.m., Gillette said. The driver stopped and cooperated with police, he added, without releasing identifying information about the driver or the vehicle involved.
The incident led to Hartz Avenue being closed for nearly an hour and half late Friday afternoon, reopening to thru-traffic by 5:20 p.m., Gillette said.
