Posted:

A teenager was sent to the hospital after he was hit by a car Friday night in Palo.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says the pedestrian was hit on Blairsferry Road around 9:15 p.m.

Samantha Eggers, 25, was driving westbound when her car struck a 13-year-old male. The teenager was walking on the roadway, dressed in dark clothing. The sheriff's office says the roadway has "minimal lighting".

He was transported to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids for, what authorities say, appeared to be injuries that were not life-threatening.

The incident is currently under investigation.
