A Texas boy, 10, was struck by a car Sunday morning just moments after buying his mom a Mother’s Day gift, according to authorities.

The boy told officers he had just snuck out to buy the gift at a Dollar General store in Lufkin, about 120 miles northeast of Houston, according to a news release by the Lufkin Police Department. 

He made his purchase — a card and a box of candy — and was crossing the street to go home when he was side-swiped in the outside lane by a northbound Chevy Malibu, the release added.
