Pasco Teen Gets Hit By Car

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- The accident happened on Court Street near 17th Avenue in Pasco.

15-year-old Dylan Amadio was hit by a car. Our cameras were at the scene minutes before the ambulance got there. We talked to Amadio's friend Dillon Pritchard.

Pritchard was with the victim when the accident happened. He says both teens were heading to the bus stop to go to the mall, when Amadio tripped and fell from the side walk onto the road.

Amadio was hit by 37-year-old Melchor Lopez from Pasco. Lopez stayed at the scene after the accident.

"As soon as I saw it and saw that he was hurt pretty bad, I just took out my cell phone and dialed 911," said Dillon Pritchard.

Pritchard also says Amadio's mother was called to the scene shortly after. Pasco police say Amadio was jay walking when the accident happened. The teen was transported to Kennewick General Hospital for his injuries.
