A skateboarder in Mount Pleasant escaped serious injury after getting hit by a truck.
Thursday afternoon, a juvenile riding a skateboard through the Fast Break parking lot attempted to cross Adams Street with a “Do Not Cross” signal showing.
A truck traveling southbound on Adams turned east onto Washington Street and struck the skateboarder. According to Mount Pleasant Police, the adolescent was dragged several feet.
Henry County ambulance was called to the scene but the juvenile and his mother declined medical attention.
Authorities say the driver of the truck was not cited because the vehicle had the right of way.
