A six-year-old boy was taken by helicopter to a trauma center after he was struck by an Acura MDX in the second block of Maryland Avenue around 7:40 p.m. Sunday.
The boy was still conscious but suffered a deep cut to his abdomen. He was loaded onto the Rehoboth Beach ambulance and taken to the Rehoboth Elementary School where he was flown by Trooper 2 to Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
The impact appears to have dented the hood of the Acura. No word yet from police on charges, if any.
