10-Year-Old Boy Struck And Killed By Vehicle On Sidewalk

MIDWOOD – A 10-year-old boy waiting at the bus stop at Ocean Ave and Ave L was killed by the driver of a gray Lexus, and his parents may not even know it yet.

At around 2:45 today, when many kids are let out of school, a man driving a gray Lexus SUV was traveling north on Ocean Avenue. Cops say the driver veered to the right and mounted the sidewalk on Avenue L where the boy was standing waiting for the bus at the bus stop. Hitting the boy did not slow the driver down. The driver continued to drive and eventually hit the scaffolding in front of 1673 Ocean Avenue.

The child had severe trauma to the neck and back and was taken to NY Community Hospital and has since been pronounced dead.

As of now, no arrests have been made, and the boy’s name has not been released pending family notification. We will update once we get more information.
