NEW YORK — Police say a 10-year-old boy standing by a bus stop was struck and killed by an out-of-control SUV in Brooklyn.

Police say the Lexus was traveling northbound on Ocean Avenue near Avenue L just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when it mounted the sidewalk and struck the boy before crashing into scaffolding.

The boy suffered neck and back trauma and was taken to New York Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The boy’s identity has not been released.

Fire officials say they transported two people to Kings County Hospital in stable condition. It wasn’t clear if the injured were in the SUV or pedestrians.

There have been no arrests. Police are still investigating.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
