Streetsblog first learned of the fatal collision via a Twitter report which said the child was struck at the intersection of 89th Road and 211th Street in Hollis. The NYPD's public information department can't confirm that information or any other details yet.

The same report also stated that the vehicle was being driven by an NYPD traffic agent, which the department denies. We'll update this post as we learn more.
