SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said a 4-year-old boy has been hospitalized after being hit by a car in Spartanburg County.

Troopers said the crash happened about 2:45 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Cleveland and Watkins streets.

The boy was riding a scooter down Watkins Street, but instead of stopping at the stop sign, the child kept going, right into the middle of Cleveland Street and into the path of oncoming Eagle sedan, according to police.

Troopers said the driver wasn't able to stop in time and hit the boy.

Witnesses said the boy was not alert or responsive when medics arrived on scene.

The boy was taken to Spartanburg Regional Hospital by ambulance. There's no word on his current condition.

Troopers said the driver of the car was emotionally distraught and was also transported to the hospital. The driver was not otherwise injured, according to police.
