A Queens man was charged on Tuesday in connection with a hit-and-run crash that injured an 11-year-old boy riding a bicycle, police said.
Agostinho Sinclair, 41, was driving a black sedan without a license on Monday around 7:40 p.m. when he struck the boy, sending him flying through the air, at the intersection of Dickens Street and Healy Avenue in Far Rockaway, police said. The child, who was not identified by police, went over the car and landed on the street.
The boy had turned onto Dickens Street from Healy Avenue, heading in the opposite direction of the driver, who kept going down Dickens Street after the crash.
The boy was taken to Long Island Jewish Medical Center with internal injuries, but was in stable condition, police said.
