FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WLNE) — The Foxborough Police Department shared on social media that a 5-year-old boy was hit by a car.

Police said around 11 a.m. Saturday morning they responded to Central Street for a call of a pedestrian struck.

First responders said the boy was struck by a passing vehicle and was suffering from serious, life threatening injuries.

Foxborough firefighters transported the boy to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

Information on his current condition was not immediately available.
