Boy critically hurt during drop off at school

An eight-year-old boy is in critical condition after he was run over by his mother’s car while being dropped off at Chandler Woods Charter Academy in Plainfield Township Tuesday. The school is located at 6895 Samrick Ave NE.

According to the Kent County Sheriff’s Office, they received the call about 8:25 a.m. that a student had been struck by a vehicle and sustained potentially serious injuries. Deputies discovered that the student was an 8-year-old third grader and the driver of the vehicle was his mother.

Police said that surveillance footage showed the boy hanging from the passenger side front door handle just prior to losing his grip and being run over by the passenger side rear tire of the vehicle.

He was transported to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, where he remains in critical condition, after suffering trauma to his head and torso. 

Police are still investigating, and when complete, the case will be reviewed by the Prosecutor’s office for any possible criminal charges. No other info about the incident will be released until that time.

Plainfield Township Fire and Rockford Ambulance assisted at the scene.
