CBS-Boston reports that the victim is a Malden resident who was with his mother and sister, visiting relatives in Tewksbury at the time of the accident. According to the report, the boy, who was not wearing a helmet, was riding his bike in a yard and then rode out into the street and into the path of a Cadillac XT5.

After being treated at the scene, the boy was transported by ambulance to the Med-Flight staging area at Tewksbury Country Club and then flown to Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
His condition Thursday morning was not available.
The accident is being investigated by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, the Tewksbury Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section.
