An 8-year-old boy was fatally hit at the intersection of Northern Boulevard and 61st Street in Woodside as he was walking to school Friday morning.

A third grader was struck and killed by a truck at a Woodside intersection Friday morning as he was on his way to school.

Noshat Nahian, 8, was crossing the street with his 11-year-old sister around 8 a.m. when a tractor trailer traveling southbound on 61st Street made a left turn, striking him with its rear tires, police said.

He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver, Mauricio Osorio-Palominos, 51, of Newark, N.J., who remained on the scene of the accident, has been charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of motor vehicle and operating vehicle in violation of safety rules, police said.

The child was a student at P.S. 152, located right where the accident occurred, according to  Christian Amez, of Woodside on the Move, which operates afterschool programs at P.S. 152.

“Woodside on the Move joins the entire community in mourning the loss we all suffered this morning,  “Our thoughts and prayers are with the young victim’s family, friends, and loved ones,” said Amez.

“It’s horrible. That poor mother,” said Lisbeth Jimenez, who has a son in fourth grade at the school.

“I feel scared to walk my son to school and even pick him up. Drivers don’t care about people,” she said.
