Bristol Police responded to an accident on Gridley Street near Cottage Street just before 5:30pm Saturday, where a car hit a five-year-old boy and his mother.
Authorities say the boy ran out from between two parked cars and into the street, and his mother chased after him. A vehicle going heading west then struck the mother and child. Both were taken to St Francis Hospital for what authorities say appeared to be minor injuries.
The names of the victims were not released. No charges have been filed, and the accident remains under investigation.
