The boy was hit on Coombs Lane just before 5:30 p.m. He was taken to Falmouth Hospital with “very critical” injuries and died a short time later.
A number of people were at a home on the Dead End Street for a party when one of them moved a pickup truck from one spot to another and somehow the child was hit.
