UPDATE, 11:13 p.m. | The child, thought to be between 4 and 5 years old, was sent to Harborview Medical Center with head injuries, according to Detective Jason Stanley, a King County sheriff’s spokesman.
Sgt. Cheryl Macdonald says the child was exiting a family van when the car hit him — hard enough to send the child into the air.
