The Cameron 911 call center received a report of a 16 year old teen being struck by a motor vehicle at approximately 7 a.m. Friday morning, June 21st.

The Cameron police and paramedics were dispatched to the scene at Grand Avenue and Eastridge Avenue where they found John Youngs, age 78 of Cameron rendering assistance to the teen.

Mr. Youngs had been eastbound on Grand Avenue in a 1994 GMC pickup truck. A juvenile, age 16, of Cameron was walking westbound along the eastbound lane of Grand Avenue along the side of the roadway and was struck by the vehicle Mr. Youngs was driving.

It was initially "rumored" that Mr. Young had left the scene of the accident. However, the rumor was later addressed by Chief L. Corey Sloan and Interim Chief of Police Rick Bashor.

In a statement by Cameron Police:

"The driver of the truck that hit the 16 year old DID NOT leave the scene of the accident. He stopped immediately, summoned for help and offered as much aid as he could to the young man.

The driver of the truck is living with something unfathomable. We wanted to make sure this rumor was quashed immediately. The Cameron PD will keep you posted as we know more about the accident investigation. "

The juvenile was transported by medical helicopter to an area hospital and was reportedly in critical but stable condition at last report.
