An 8-year-old boy suffered an apparent leg injury when he was struck by a car while trying to cross a busy road in Rennerdale last week.

A woman stopped under suspicion of DUI earlier this month had to be hospitalized after Collier police said she fought with officers and suffered medical problems after allegedly mixing alcohol and prescription pills.

He said those materials “fed the fire” before the rear of the structure collapsed. However, firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to the neighboring Chartiers Valley Self-…
