A 4-year-old Alexandria boy was killed Saturday when he ran into the street and was hit by a car, police said.

Police said the boy was walking with his mother in the 6400 block of Stevenson Avenue at about 11:05 a.m. Saturday when he ran into the road. His mother followed him and both were struck by a 2010 Jeep Commander being driven by a 84-year-old man.

The mother and son were taken to a hospital, where the boy was pronounced dead and the woman was treated for injuries not considered to be life-threatening.

As of Sunday, the child had not been identified, and police continued to reconstruct the incident.
