PECULIAR, Mo. — A boy riding his bike outside an elementary school in Peculiar remained in critical condition on Thursday after he was struck by a car at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The child, who neighbors say is six-years-old and the son of a West Peculiar Fire District firefighter, was riding his friend’s bike near South and East Third Streets at the time of the accident.

The boy was flown to Children’s Mercy Hospital. On Thursday, his friends at school made cards for him.

The driver was not found at fault and is not expected to face any charges.
