Teen sent to hospital after being hit by car in Anna

ANNA, IL (KFVS) -

A teenager was sent to the hospital early Tuesday after being hit by a car in Anna.

It happened on October 4, at 1:15 in the morning.

According to ISP, Tyler Allen Van Buren, 17, from Anna, was walking on Dogwood Lane when a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, driven by William J. Hutcheson, age 37, hit Van Buren.

Troopers say Hutcheson was driving north on Springfield Avenue and tried to avoid Van Buren, but couldn't.

ISP says Van Buren received major injuries and was taken to Union County Hospital. He was then flown to St. Louis University Hospital in critical condition.

The investigation is continuing.
