PORT ORANGE -- A 10-year-old boy struck by a pick-up truck while trying to cross Taylor Road for Spruce Creek Elementary School, remained in critical condition overnight at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Port Orange police said.

Douglas Ethan Swayze, a fifth grader, was running in the crosswalk toward the school in the 600 block of Taylor just after 7 a.m. when he was struck by a Chevy pick up driven by 60-year-old Michael Schoenbeck. Indications are the driver was driving within the posted speed of 45 mph and it was still dark outside, Assistant Police Chief Wayne Miller said, based on an initial investigation that is ongoing.
