A 7-year-old boy died this morning after being hit by an MTA Bridges and Tunnels tow truck in Manhattan.
The boy and his 34-year-old mother were crossing the street at E. 124th Street and 2nd Avenue when the truck rammed into them at about 9 a.m.
EMTs raced the young child and his mother to Harlem Hospital, but the boy could not be saved. The mother is listed in stable condition.
No criminality is suspected at this time, police say.
The investigation is ongoing.
