A 4-year-old boy from Melville who was injured in a Nov. 7 motor vehicle crash in Brooklyn died from his injuries Tuesday at Maimonides Medical Center, the NYPD reported.

Police said the boy, Giovanni Quiles, was a rear-seat passenger in a 2023 GMC Sierra 3500 pickup that struck an elevated train support pillar while traveling east on Atlantic Avenue near Brooklyn Avenue.

The boy was transported to NYC Health and Hospitals/Kings County in critical condition and was later transferred to Maimonides, where he succumbed to his injuries. An 11-year-old boy sitting in the front passenger seat was also injured.

The driver of the Sierra, a 16-year-old male, was also injured in the crash. He has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, violation of local law, driving without a license and having alcohol and cannabis in a motor vehicle on a highway, the NYPD said.
