A Malta Bend boy suffered moderate injuries Monday afternoon when he was struck by a vehicle on a street in Malta Bend.
According to a preliminary Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Kathy S. Marshall, 49, of Malta Bend was southbound on Linn Street in a 1993 Ford when she stopped for children who were playing in the street. Marshall proceeded south after the children moved. At that point, William A. Hostetter, 9, also of Malta Bend, ran into the street and was struck by Marshall's vehicle. Hostetter was taken to Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall with what were listed as moderate injuries.
No summons was issued according to the report.
