An 11-year-old boy has been hit by a car at Forestville in Sydney’s north.

The boy was struck by a four-wheel-drive as he rode his scooter along the footpath on Warringah Road about 5pm on Friday.

Police believe he rode across the driveway of a service station when he was hit.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said paramedics were called to Warringah Road with reports a boy, then believed to be 7, had been hit by a car.

The boy was treated by paramedics for injuries to his pelvis, lower leg and head.

He was placed into an induced coma at the scene before he was taken by helicopter to Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick with serious injuries, police said.
