Boy run over by car after shirt gets stuck on mirror

An 11-year-old boy was hurt Sunday when his shirt became caught on the side mirror of a car driven by a 15-year-old, police said.

The teenager, Leslye Townsend of 1058 Tecumseh St., who is related to the boy, was not hurt.

Police said the boy was standing next to the car when it started backing up. His shirt became caught on the mirror and he fell, striking his head on the pavement as his legs were run over by the right front tire, police said.
