HAYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) -- A Haysville kindergartner suffered serious injuries after he was hit by a pickup truck as he arrived for school.

Sedgwick County authorities say the boy was hit and pinned by the truck early Thursday as he arrived for classes at Nelson Elementary School.

KWCH-TV reports police said the boy was crossing the street with his mother at a crosswalk when he was hit and dragged about 30 yards. He suffered serious injuries to his legs and is hospitalized in Wichita.

The mother was not hurt.

Police say the driver, who is in his 80s, may not have seen a red light at the intersection because the sun was in his eyes.
