Boy hit by drunk driver in Logan

A nine-year-old boy is fighting for his life in hospital after he was struck by an alleged drunk driver at Logan last night.

Just after 7pm, police say a man was driving along Jardine Street in Springwood when he collided with a parked car before striking the boy who was walking nearby.

The car then drove through a hedge and collided with a water tank and then crashed into a house on Rholanda Crescent.


A 24-year-old Springwood man has been spoken to police and investigations are continuing.

The boy is in a critical condition at the Lady Cilento Hospital.
