AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a 6-year-old boy who was hit by a car while he was riding a bicycle in northeast Ohio in April has died.

WEWS-TV in Cleveland reported (https://bit.ly/239fkcV ) Tuesday that the Summit County Medical Examiner’s office says Michael Roberts was pulled off of life support on Sunday.

Roberts was riding a bicycle when police say he went through a stop sign and was hit by a car. The boy from Tallmadge was hospitalized in critical condition in an Akron hospital.

Police say investigators don’t believe the 24-year-old Akron driver was responsible for the crash. But she has been cited for having a suspended license.
