Bronx boy struck and killed at busy Edenwald intersection
A 9-year-old Bronx boy was fatally struck by a dump truck while crossing Baychester Avenue in Edenwald Thursday afternoon.
Witnesses say the vehicle had the right of way when the accident occurred and that a "stop" signal by a crossing guard was ignored by the boy. The victim was later taken to Jacobi Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police say no arrests have been made in this incident. The driver of the vehicle, who has a clean record, has been cited for mechanical failures on the truck. The investigation is ongoing.
