Posted: Updated:

A DUI arrest Friday night in Sioux Falls serves as a stark reminder that when the weather warms up kids are out on the streets.

Around 7:00 Friday night, a 10-year-old boy was riding his bike northbound on Menlo Avenue, when he was hit by a car. A car that did not have a stop sign.

Witnesses say the westbound vehicle was driving the speed limit, the boy darted out into the road, and the driver was simply unable to stop in time.

Sioux Falls Police tell KSFY that the driver, 43-year-old Bryan Preheim, was arrested for open container and driving under the influence.  However, he is not at fault for the accident.

The boy was brought to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
