A young boy was critically injured in an accident in east Wichita.  It happened around 8:30 p.m. Friday night near Kellogg and 143rd street east.

A Sheriff's spokesman says two juveniles were attempting to cross Kellogg when one of the boys was hit by an oncoming car.  That boy was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.

The second boy as well as the driver have been interviewed by police and sheriff's deputies.  It's believed the boys were not in an open crosswalk, and eastbound traffic had the right-of-way.

The accident remains under investigation.
