NORTH BERGEN — Police are looking for the driver of an SUV that went through a stop sign striking an 11-year-old boy inside a crosswalk Tuesday morning.

North Bergen police posted video of the boy stepping into the crosswalk at Hudson Avenue at 76th Street around 8:15 AM while looking down at his phone.

He was halfway across when the driver of a gray Ford Explorer, model year sometime between 2020 and 2024, didn't stop and hit the boy knocking him to the ground.

The boy got back up, retrieved his phone from the ground, and walked back to the sidewalk where he doubled over in pain.

A woman pushing a stroller who had been walking behind the boy but stopped for the Explorer comforted him before taking his arm and walking him across the street as the video ends.

The boy continued onto school and told teachers what happened, reported. They in turn called the police.
