BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WCTV) - Following an accident at the 1000 block of Broughton Street in Bainbridge Wednesday evening, Bainbridge Public Safety says that a 6-year-old boy was life-flighted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

BPS says the accident happened around 6:30 p.m.

According to BPS, the child was hit while riding a bicycle.

Georgia State Patrol then took over the investigation and told WCTV that the boy was hit by the car and went over the hood.

He was then life-flighted to the hospital with substantial injuries.
