A 4-year-old Sandy boy was in serious condition Tuesday after he was hit by a car in his driveway, police said.

When the teenager got out of the car, he found his brother on the ground. The boy was taken to Primary Children’s Medical Center. His condition was downgraded to serious when he passed out on the way to the hospital, but doctors were able to stablize him on arrival and his injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, Arnold said.
