VIRGINIA BEACH - A child was hit by a car Thursday afternoon, Va. Beach Police said.

It happened around 12:20 p.m. near the intersection of Donna Drive and First Colonial Road.

Police spokeswoman MPO Tonya Borman said a woman was crossing the road with two children when she was grazed by a car. One of the children couldn't stop and was hit by that car.

As the driver swerved to avoid the people, it struck a car, which then hit a third vehicle.

The eight-year-old boy has serous but not life-threatening injuries, Borman noted, adding that the youngster was taken to the hospital.

The second child wasn't hurt and the woman should be okay.

The investigation into the incident continues.
