A three-year-old pedestrian sustained minor injuries following an accident involving a vehicle in Opelousas late this morning.

Police say the child ran into the road at the intersection of Hall and Fern streets as a vehicle was driving by shortly before 11:45 a.m.

The child was treated at a hospital and later released.

The driver of the vehicle reported the accident and submitted to toxicology tests. Major Mark Guidry says the results of the tests were negative, meaning the driver was not under the influence during the accident.
