A 9-year-old was struck by a squad car in Aurora while running across a street during heavy thunderstorms that plowed through the area Friday night.

Aurora Police said around 7 p.m. two children, a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old, ran across Ohio Street near Front Street in front of an approaching squad car.

The 9-year-old was struck by the car.

Police said the officer inside the vehicle began administering first aid and the 9-year-old was later transported to Mercy Hospital for possible internal injuries.

The 7-year-old and the officer were not injured in the accident.

Aurora Police are investigating the incident, but say preliminary reports indicate speed was not a factor in the accident and no citations have been issued.
