A 10-year-old boy was struck and seriously injured on a Coram street by the vehicle his father was driving, Suffolk County police said.
The father was driving home when he saw the boy walking on the street with a sibling, a police spokeswoman said.
“He pulled over to talk to them,” she said, when the accident occurred.
Police said they responded to the scene on Judith Drive about 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The circumstances are still being investigated, police said Wednesday.
“The child was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital in serious condition, where he and his family remain,” police said in a statement.
Police provided no other details.
