A 19-year-old, driving with just a learner’s permit, struck a 7-year-old boy in Queens last night, said police.
Around 6:50 p.m., the woman was heading east on Myrtle Avenue when she hit the child as he was crossing on Madison Street.
The victim was taken to Wyckoff Hospital and pronounced dead.
The driver remained on the scene of the accident and produced a valid New York State learner’s permit. After a preliminary investigation, she was issued a summons for an unlicensed operator.
The NYPD is still investigating the accident.
