A 15-year-old boy riding a scooter was struck by a car Monday afternoon in northwest Indiana.

The teenager was on a scooter at 45th Avenue and Wood Street about 3:50 p.m. when he was struck by a car, Griffith Police Cmdr. Keith Martin said.

He was initially taken Methodist Hospital Northlake in Gary, but was airlifted to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Martin said. His condition Tuesday morning wasn’t immediately available.

The driver who struck him stopped after the crash and is cooperating with police, Martin said. No charges or citations have been filed.

The Lake County sheriff’s office’s Crash Reconstruction Team is assisting with the investigation.
