Around 9:40 a.m. this morning, a 7-year-old child and his mother were struck by a MTA tow truck at Second Avenue and East 125th Street. The boy was pronounced dead at Harlem Hospital. According to the Post, "The boy and his mother appeared to be jaywalking at the time of the accident" and the pair were trying to "coss an entrance ramp to the Triboro Bridge."

WABC 7 reports, "The tow truck was heading to assist a disabled vehicle on the bridge right when the mother and young boy were crossing the street. Sources tell Eyewitness News the driver probably never saw the two crossing the street. The tow truck is operated by the MTA Bridges & Tunnels."

The driver stayed at the scene and no criminality is suspected.
