The boy was riding his skateboard in the road near 1100 South and 1000 East about 7 p.m. when he apparently fell off his skateboard and into the path of a passing vehicle, Assistant Clearfield Police Chief Mike Stenquist said.
The vehicle, driven by a 69-year-old woman, rolled on top of him and pinned him. Neighbors helped police jack up the vehicle and extricate the boy.
He was taken to Primary Children’s Medical Center by helicopter in critical condition, where he underwent surgery. He suffered two broken legs, a broken pelvis, and damage to several internal organs.
