GOWEN— A 6-year-old boy was struck by a car Monday evening near the Gowen General Store on Sidney Road.
The Gowen boy was on his way home from a neighbor’s house around 6:45 p.m. when he ran across the road in front of a 1998 Lincoln Town Car driven by a 32-year-old man from Lowell.
The boy was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health United Hospital in Greenville, then flown by AeroMed to a hospital in Grand Rapids.
The family reports that the boy is in serious but stable condition.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the accident.
