A young boy suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car in southeast Fresno on Thursday.

Officers say one lane of traffic stopped for them to cross but a driver in the second lane didn't see them.

One child made it across safely but the second boy was hit by a car.

The 12-year-old was taken to Community Regional Medical Center with a broken arm and leg.

The driver of the car that hit him stayed at the scene and is cooperating with police.

Police say there was a crosswalk just 30 feet from where they crossed.
