A three year old child was injured around 8:00 p.m. Sunday evening after being struck by a car on Morgan Drive.

The child, Kason Redmon, of 716 Gentry Avenue, was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

In the accident report, Officer Marcus Caldwell says 19 year old Mindy C. Magouirk of 718 Gentry Avenue was driving east on Morgan Drive in a 1987 Chevrolet Celebrity when she struck the child.

Officer Caldwell, in the report, stated that \"Upon my arrival, I noticed this 3 year old lying in the lawn of 724 Morgan Drive with his father, Jeffery Redmon, kneeling over him. I noticed the child was crying. Medical care was rendered to the child until EMS arrived.

Magouirk, in her statement to police, said \" While driving, I noticed a neighborhood kid at 429 Morgan Drive and waved at her. When I looked back at the road, I saw a child but could not stop in time.\"

According to the report, the child's father, Jeffery Redmon, ran to his son after hearing him scream, picked him up out of the road, and placed him onto the lawn of 724 Morgan Drive.
