Driver who struck child in crosswalk not ticketed

An Appleton driver failed to come to a complete stop at a pedestrian crosswalk Tuesday afternoon and struck a seven-year-old boy who was riding his bicycle. A witness said that the car should have seen the child and had time to stop. The witness also added that the child was already in the middle of the street when he got hit, so it wasn’t a situation in which the child jumped out in front of the driver. Despite the fact that the crosswalk was clearly marked, the pedestrian was not ticketed for the incident.

Authorities said that the choice to issue a traffic violation or not is at the discretion of each individual traffic officer. Police said that a report indicating why the person who struck the child was not ticketed will be completed by Friday.
