A 10-year-old boy was killed and another youth was injured when two vehicles involved in an accident swerved onto a sidewalk Monday afternoon in Chester, police said.
About 4 p.m., a red Ford F-350 and a dark-burgundy Chevrolet Monte Carlo collided in the intersection of Ninth Street and Highland Avenue.
Both vehicles veered onto the Highland Avenue sidewalk behind a corner pizza shop, said Kent Drake, owner of Just Pizza.
The truck rolled over the 10-year-old, who leaped to his feet and tried to run before collapsing nearby, said Drake, who was outside and witnessed the mayhem.
The other boy, Tyvaun Fryson, 11, was struck by one of the vehicles but was able to run home a few houses down on Highland, Drake said.
