The 8-year-old boy was hit near Rockaway and Hegeman avenues at 7:01 a.m., an NYPD spokesman said.

Google Maps shows the location it next to multiple schools.

The child’s condition is unknown, but his leg was injured, according to police.

Correction: A previous version of this article erroneously reported that the boy was 11 years old based on initial NYPD reports. Later reports showed the boy was 8. This story has been updated to reflect that change.
