Police: Teen hit by car in Jericho

JERICHO - Police say they are investigating whether piled-high snow played a role in an accident involving a teenager who was struck by a car in Jericho this evening.

They say it happened at the corner of Jericho Turnpike and Merry Lane.

A gas station worker says a group of boys, around 13 years old, came in yelling to call 911 because one of their friends had been hit by a car.

Witnesses say large snow piles may have made it hard for the driver to see the teen on the road.

There's no word on the boy's condition, but witnesses say he was up and walking around after the accident.
