A 13-year-old boy struck by a vehicle last Wednesday near the intersection of South 56th Avenue and Summitview has been upgraded to serious condition after spending days in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Yakima Police say Ryan Morris remains in the intensive care unit. Authorities say he was struck by a vehicle after he dropped a piece of paper and ran into the roadway to retrieve it.

He suffered head injuries as well as broken bones. He was transferred to the Seattle hospital last week.

The driver was not cited.
