NYPD: 10-year-old boy fatally struck by SUV at bus stop


NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a 10-year-old boy standing by a bus stop was struck and killed by an out-of-control SUV in Brooklyn.

Police say the Lexus was traveling northbound on Ocean Avenue near Avenue L just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when it mounted the sidewalk and struck the boy before crashing into scaffolding.

The boy suffered neck and back trauma and was taken to New York Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The boy’s identity has not been released.
