\WENATCHEE – The Chelan County Sheriff’s office and Wenatchee police responded to a report of a child that had been hit by a car at the intersection of Washington and King Streets in Wenatchee Thursday afternoon. An off-duty paramedic arrived on scene shortly before officers and found the child had sustained major injuries and was unconscious.
