MARINE PARK, Brooklyn — A 9-year-old boy was critically injured in a multivehicle car crash in Marine Park on Friday morning, police said.

The boy was taken to Maimonides Medical Center in critical, but stable condition by a private Hatzolah ambulance, officials said.

Officials have not released the child’s name.
