A 10-year-old boy is clinging to life following a horrific accident in Midwood.

Witnesses told police that the child, a member of the area’s close-knit Orthodox community, allegedly ran out into the street near East 2nd Street and Avenue J at 8 p.m. on September 22 when he was struck by a passing car.

The child was immediately rushed to an area hospital, where he was listed in extremely critical condition with head injuries.

He has since been transferred to a pediatric facility connected to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

“He’s made it through the last 72 hours, so he has a pretty good chance,” said a source close to the incident Thursday. “We don’t know if there is any brain damage.”

Investigators said that no charges have been filed against the driver.
