WINCHESTER — A 5-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of the outdoor swimming pool at Jim Barnett Park on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

Winchester Police Department spokeswoman Lt. Amanda R. Behan said in an email that officers responded to the incident about 2:20 p.m.

“It was determined the [boy] had run out in front of a moving vehicle in the parking lot,” Behan said. “The child sustained minor injuries that were treated on scene; however, he was transported to the Winchester Medical Center by Winchester Fire and Rescue to rule out any unseen injury.”

Behan said no charges were filed.
