boy broadsided a Cadillac Escalade when he turned onto Vacation Drive. He impacted the vehicle with enough force to initiate the airbags inside of it, Sgt. J.P. Strang said.

The 59-year-old woman who was driving the vehicle stayed behind and was cooperative with law enforcement officials, according to Strang.

Medical personnel responded and transported the boy to a local hospital for treatment after police arrival.
