TOWN OF BROOKLYN, Wis. -

A 12-year-old boy from Brooklyn was injured after darting in front of a vehicle on a highway, according to the Green County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were called to the N7800 block of State Highway 104 in Brooklyn Township at 7:06 p.m. Thursday for a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian crash with injuries.

Investigators said Charles T. Parrish, 77, of Lanark, Ill. was driving south when he saw the boy standing on the east side of the road. Parrish told deputies he slowed slightly before the boy darted into his path. Parrish took evasive action but was unable to avoid striking the boy.
