A 10-year-old boy was seriously injured last night when he was hit by a van while crossing the street with his mother, according to city officials and media reports.
Mayor Jeannette McCarthy said she was at a concert near the scene when the child was struck at Lexington and Main streets sometime around 9 p.m.
She said police told her the child was conscious when he was taken from the scene to a Boston hospital but that his injuries were serious. She said she did not think police would charge the driver.
