East Ridge police say a toddler was struck by a vehicle Thursday morning.

Officers responded to a pedestrian struck call just after 10:00 am in the 1200 block of John Ross Road.

Police believe the two-year-old child was chasing a dog into the road.

The driver of the vehicle hit their brakes after seeing the child, but it was too late, police added.

The toddler's mother called the child back into the yard, and the toddler ran back.

The child was taken to an area hospital to be treated for apparent minor injuries.

Police say the toddler was awake and talking.

No one is being charged at this time.
