SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A young boy was sent to the hospital after he was hit by a vehicle in Schenectady Tuesday afternoon.

The accident took place around 4:45 p.m. in the area of Ashmore Avenue and Central Parkway. Police said the boy was riding his bicycle before being hit.

The boy was in critical condition at Ellis Hospital before being transferred to Albany Medical Center. He is now stabilized, according to police.

“We, obviously, we’re going to emphasize kids wearing proper safety equipment; that’s going to be the number one thing with us,” Schenectady Sgt. Nick Mannix said. “You know, if you’re riding a bike, you know, you want to have at, at the very least, a helmet on.”

Police are continuing the investigation. The driver is being cooperative.
