An 11-year-old is fighting for his life in a Dallas hospital after he was struck by a car trying to cross a busy intersection.

The accident happened around 11 p.m. Thursday night. Aaron Christopher Lloyd, 11, of Ore City, was trying to cross Eastman Road near the park and stepped into the path of an oncoming car.

The driver, 73-year-old Jimmy Ray Noble of Gilmer, could not stop in time and hit Lloyd.

Lloyd was taken to a Longview hospital and later flown to a Dallas hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

Longview police determined Noble was not at fault because Lloyd was not crossing at a crosswalk or intersection at the time of the accident.
