Boy struck by car on Dunn Drive in good condition at Huntsville Hospital

Sad that kids can't ride their bikes here without fear of getting hit by car.(I am sure the driver was alert, not on the phone and certainly not texting) What does is say about Huntsville? "Quality of Life" or "Paid for making death and no value for life". It's early and I am not sure. Thanks again go to the city for making the PSA's, now I must go form a sub committee to decide if I can take a crap.

HUNTSVILLE, AL -- An 11-year-old boy struck by a car last night has been upgraded to good condition at Huntsville Hospital.
Police say James Alexander Loudermilk was riding his bicycle in the 3300 block of Dunn Drive around 6:30 p.m. when he crossed the street in front of a car. The driver couldn't stop in time and struck the boy's bike, throwing him several feet in the air.
Huntsville police spokesman Sgt. Mark Roberts said Loudermilk was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be a broken pelvis. The boy remains in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, but his condition has improved, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The incident has been ruled an accident, and no charges have been filed against the driver.
