WATERLOO, Iowa — Police say officers have arrested a Waterloo man after a 12-year-old driving his car struck a 4-year-old boy on a bicycle.
Police say Jesse Azbill, 34, had given the 12-year-old permission to drive the vehicle and say Azbill was in it when the little boy was struck just before 1 p.m. Tuesday in Waterloo. The boy was taken to University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics in Iowa City for treatment. His name hasn't been released.
