SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) -- A 7-year-old boy is in serious condition with head injuries he suffered when he was hit by a car in San Francisco Monday. Investigators say it's possible the child would not have been hurt if he'd been wearing a helmet.

Stephon Young was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with a head injury. The accident happened in the Western Addition shortly after 2 p.m.

The black Acura sedan was going westbound on Turk street. The child was riding his brand new electric scooter when the Acura hit the scooter, sending Stephon over the hood. His head struck the windshield.
