ELMHURST, Queens (PIX11) — A 5-year-old boy was killed in a Queens hit-and-run collision on Thursday evening, police said.

Jonathan Martinez was crossing the street with his parents at 100th Street and McIntosh Street around 5:30 p.m. when he was hit by a white Dodge Ram truck, officials said. The driver kept going.

Martinez suffered severe head trauma and torso injuries, police said. He was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The deadly crash happened a block from a school and a playground. Some teens playing basketball witnessed the collision.

“He got hit by a car and there was blood all over his face. They were performing CPR on him,” said witness Ayaan Ahmed. “He was a little kid, so it was sad to see that happen.”

Neighbors said people are generally careful about driving through the area, which is often filled with children.

“It’s a lot of kids going back and forth because the school is right on the corner,” said neighbor Rita Suarez.
