A 9-year-old Dundalk boy was in critical condition last night after he was struck by a vehicle while running down an alley near his home, county police said.
Christian Portillo of the 7900 block of Kavanagh Road and his older sister were in an alley near Armco Way about 5 p.m. when the boy was hit by a Ford Ranger pickup, said Sgt. Robert Czawlytko of the county's crash investigation team.
The boy sustained multiple internal injuries and was flown by a state police helicopter to the pediatric intensive care unit at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, the sergeant said.
Czawlytko said the accident remains under investigation.
