ST. GEORGE, Maine (AP) — Authorities have identified the 9-year-old Massachusetts boy killed when he was struck by an out-of-control car in the small coastal Maine town of St. George.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Department says Dylan Gold of Cohasset was struck Sunday afternoon while walking with his family in the town’s Port Clyde village. His mother, 50-year-old Allison Gold, and 6-year-old brother, Wyatt, were also hurt and flown to a Portland hospital. Allison Gold was in critical condition on Monday. The boys’ father, Howard, was unhurt.

A local man, 68-year-old Jonathan Coggeshall, was also hurt and taken to a local hospital.

The driver of the car has been identified as 61-year-old Cheryl Torgerson of New York City. Police say she told them she doesn’t remember what happened. No charges have been filed.

WCVB-TV reported that the boy was struck while he and his family were getting ready to board the ferry to Monhegan Island.
