A 7-year-old boy was in serious condition Sunday after he was hit by a pickup truck while sprinting into a residential street in North Las Vegas.

North Las Vegas Police received reports of the accident near Belmont Street and Carey Avenue about 12:30 p.m. A truck was driving down the 3000 block of Glendale Avenue when a boy darted between two cars and into the street, said North Las Vegas Police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon.

The truck, which police believe was not speeding, hit the boy. The boy was taken to University Medical Center.

Coon said the driver is not expected to face charges.
