BOISE -- A 2-year-old boy was hit by a car in a southwest Boise neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

Ada County Sheriff's deputies are investigating the incident which happened on South Zion Place, just off Cloverdale Road.

A sheriff's spokesman said that a Chevy Malibu driven by a 36-year-old woman apparently bumped into the boy. The child was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

Investigators determined the boy was at a neighbor s house playing with some older kids when he decided to run home and darted behind the truck. Those kids tried to stop him but were not able to.

The female driver will not be cited in connection with the crash.
