WEST ISLIP - A West Islip High School student remains in critical condition at Good Samaritan Hospital after he was hit by a car this morning while walking to school.

The incident happened at the intersection of Barberry Road and Montauk Highway at around 7 a.m.

Cops say an 84-year-old woman driving a tan Buick slammed into Christopher Wilson, 16, while he was walking to the high school.

School officials say Wilson is a junior and does not usually walk to school.

Residents in the area say that a traffic light needs to be installed at the intersection to help prevent future incidents like this one.
