TEWKSBURY, MASS. (WHDH) - A 7-year-old child was flown to the hospital after being struck by a car in Tewksbury Wednesday night, police said.

Emergency crews responding to the area of 34 Pratt Street for a report of a person struck by a Cadillac XT5 around 5 p.m. found a child suffering from unknown injuries.

The child was being treated at the hospital for serious injuries.

Video from SKY 7 H-D showed several EMTs, police officers and firefighters gathered at the scene.

“I could see them putting him on the board and stuff. Pretty sad, I have five kids myself so it’s kind of scary,” said Todd Arsenault, who witnessed the aftermath.
