A 7-year-old boy suffered minor injuries after being struck by a truck Tuesday afternoon on Seawall Boulevard, police said.

The accident happened about 4 p.m. in the 2700 block of Seawall Boulevard.

The truck, which was traveling east along the boulevard, struck the child when he walked out into a traffic lane, Galveston Police Department Capt. Joshua Schirard said.

The child was not in a crosswalk.

The child’s injuries were not life-threatening, Schirard said. He was taken to a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital for treatment, Schirard said.

No charges were filed against the driver.
