BRIEFLY : BOY, 6, HIT, INJURED BY CAR NEAR SCHOOL.

VAN NUYS - A first-grader at the Valerio Primary Center in Van Nuys was struck by a car Thursday outside the campus and suffered minor cuts and scrapes, authorities said.

The 6-year-old boy was injured about 7:45 a.m. in the 15000 block of Valerio Street, said Los Angeles police spokeswoman Charlotte Broughton.

He was airlifted to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles for treatment and was in stable condition, Broughton said.

The boy apparently was in a crosswalk in front of a 1991 Geo Storm driven by a woman who told police she was blinded by sunlight, Broughton said. The boy was pinned beneath the vehicle but was freed by two passers-by.

Police interviewed the motorist, who is about 30, but did not cite or arrest her, Broughton said. Her name was not released.

Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Hilda Ramirez said the boy is a student at the Valerio Primary Center, which is affiliated with Valerio Street Elementary School on the same campus. His name was withheld.

Chatsworth reading of 97 sets a record

The mercury topped out at a record 97 degrees in Chatsworth on Thursday, the National Weather Service reported.

That broke the old mark of 94 set on this date in 1964.

But it was even hotter at nearby Simi Valley, where the 100-degree mark shattered the record of 90 set there on this date in 1983, according to the NWS.

The mercury reached 94 in Los Angeles, well off the 100-degree record set on this date in 1929. But the ``normal'' high in Los Angeles for an Oct. 21 is 81 degrees, according to the NWS.

It was the second day in a row of record temperatures in some areas of the Southland, which has been under a dome of high pressure for several days.
