NEW YORK - The New York City Police Department says a 3-year-old boy was killed and his mother injured after being struck by a vehicle Monday morning in Manhattan.
Police say it happened just before 10 a.m. when a Ford F-250 driven by a 59-year-old man was turning onto First Avenue from 116th Street in East Harlem.
Investigators say the boy, identified as Bertin Dejesus, was being pushed in a stroller by his mother in the intersection when they were struck by the truck.
The 3-year-old was pronounced dead at NYC Health and Hospitals/Metropolitan.
The mother was being treated for minor injuries at the same hospital.
Investigators say the driver remained at the scene.
Charges are now pending.
