WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - 22News has new information to share on the child that was hit by a car on Main Street in West Springfield, Thursday night.
22News reporter Nicole Nalepa spoke to the father of the victim, who said that his 6 year-old son is still in critical condition at Baystate Medical Center, Friday morning. Doctors say the boy is suffering from brain damage and heart problems.
The accident took place around 6:30 Wednesday night in front of 184 Main Street. The boy's father said his son was crossing the street with his daughter at the time.

Neighbors told 22News that this is a densely-populated area with lots of children. This street is also near the North End Bridge Rotary, so there it is a heavily commuted route.
